Glory In Bold Colours

These were taken on the last day of the festival, Victoria Day, May 23rd. They are from Major's Hill Park, namely the tulips east of Colonel By's statue. The tulips looked particularly beautiful with the tree blossoms and the surrounding architecture.

  11. @Tex: and a lot of it.

    @Norma: definitely!

    @Red: admittedly the camera doesn't tell all- I kind of prefer when possible to shoot around crowds, and there were a good number of people there that day. I might go for close ups or wait for enough of a lull to photograph with fewer people in the shot. Sometimes I want people in the shot.

    @MB: you're most welcome. Three more posts to go from here... I'll be finished on Monday.

    @Sharon: quite so!

    @RedPat: it really did. That particular weekend was the best time for this bed of tulips.

    @Kreig: thanks!
