  • Attached is a picture I took in April at the Keukenhof Gardens in Holland.  The Gardens are billed as the most beautiful spring gardens in the world and it is no exaggeration!  The picture was taken with a Canon SX40.

  • This photo was taken at Cantigny in Wheaton, Illinois.  It's late afternoon and the sun is really magnifying the colors of the 1,000's of tulips.

It also helps to crop and frame the photo to emphasize the area in focus, as well as what's not.
