Outstanding Aerial Photography of Tulip Fields of Netherlands by Normann Szkop
Abstract rainbows of color fill the landscape in these beautiful photos by French photographer Normann Szkop who hopped in a Cesna with pilot Claython Pender to soar above the tulip fields in Anna Paulowna, a town in North Holland. The Netherlands is world-famous for their tulip fields. Every year from March to May the Dutch countryside transforms into a sea of colour. Collectively, the millions of neatly planted flowers create sprawling patterns and designs that tourists flock to witness with their own eyes every season. According to Nat Geo, the first tulip was planted in Dutch soil in 1593, and it has become a national symbol ever since.
In the series below you will find incredible photographs taken by Normann Szkop (Bruxelles5 on Flickr). The photographer snapped these from a small prop plane flown by Claython Pender (who has a great blog post on the journey they went on to get these shots).
