Spring is a beautiful season in the Netherlands. Every year there are many different flowers to see and photograph. You might know me for my many years of photographing tulips, but there are so many more beautiful flowers to see in the Netherlands!
The water freezes around the flowers and buds and gives a protective layer for the ‘real’ destructive frost. In the morning the water unfreezes from the first sunlight, and most flowers awaken untouched! The frozen water around the flowers gives a magical effect!
This photo series shows frozen flowers on the morning of Sunday, April 3rd in the Betuwe area of the Netherlands, which is famous for its fruit trees.
Special thanks to local Betuwe photographers that photograph this beautiful sight every year, in particular Ronald Verwijs that pushed me to come and see (and photograph) it.
