These photos of stunningly colourful tulip fields in Lisse, western Netherlands, are a gentle reminder of how nature can sometimes leave us absolutely speechless.

This is not nature, this is industry!!!!

what a shockingly old fashioned way of talking about these images. sure, in the 90s it was fashionable to discard any probable negative reality behind what’s in your face, and to just enjoy the bright side of not knowing the dark side. i’d like to think that the good thing about our contemporary times, is the desire for a more authentic approach. the area you’re looking at in these pictures is one of the most polluted regions in holland, the waters surrounding the flowers blocks are glowing with pesticides. insects and their preditors have a terrible time coping with the poisoned pollen and pregnant women is even advised to bypass the epic fields. only admiring the aesthetics of these photos is as shallow as buying chinese jeans from h&m. wanna talk cool travel? step your game up, people.
