Orange Red Tulip Square
Photograph - Photography
Our Tulips came up and we were surprised to see some of the colorful ones we had chosen last fall. This Tulip was one that really stood out and I decided to shoot a macro image of it and use a square format for it's presentation. This was shot with a 105mm macro lens and I added a watercolor texture I painted to it to enhance the look of the photo.
Tulips are world-famous flowers that have intrigued gardeners for centuries. Today, they are one of the most popular flowers of all time, both in the United States and throughout the world, because of their many different shapes, sizes and colors. Gardeners interested in information about tulips should be aware of their characteristics and ideal growing conditions in order to make the best choices when planting tulips in their garden. We always look for different kinds to plant in the fall for spring and are one of our favorite spring flowers.
Tulips are easily identified in spring by their bright colors in every shade imaginable except blue. Tulip blooms have six petals, which can either be smooth or ruffled, as in the case of newer hybrids. Tulips may be cup shaped, bowl shaped or goblet shaped. The blooms grow on a single thick stem which can be as short as 1 foot or up to 2 feet tall.
