I shot these photos on a short trip to The Netherlands (Holland) in April of 2012. It was quite cold (for Floridians) and, unfortunately, rained both days we were in Kinderdijk (windmills). Holland is a beautiful country, inhabited by warm, friendly people. The vast majority of the flower photos were shot at The Keukenhof Gardens our first day in country. The place is so massive that we barely saw half of it in the eight hours we spent there. We only spent a half day in Amsterdam, preferring instead the smaller towns and villages. Our choice was rewarded in many ways, most notably all the sheep (and baby lambs) we got to see.
