Tulips are such beautiful flowers and so much fun to shoot, especially at botanical gardens where they are planted in large swathes. I was lucky enough to visit Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Boylston, MA (near Worcester for those who are familiar with this area) when the tulips were in full bloom.
I took a lot of shots but this one was my favorite because it highlights the purple tulip and also shows some the beautiful colors in the background.
