Exquisite Beauty

The sculpture Man With Two Hats stands in the park, one of a pair by the artist, the other present in the Netherlands.


Across from the park itself and on the dock overlooking the lake were several of the large tulip sculptures, along with flower boxes of tulips.


Returning back into the park, I took this shot of bushes with tulips growing among them. The work of methodical and efficient squirrel gardeners, no doubt.


The tulips beckoned, along with blossoming trees.

  12. Notice the difference with shots in the shade and those in bright light. You managed most of your photos in good light.
