Before the housing bubble, before the
dot-com boom, before the gold rush, there were tulips. The flowers that made
the Netherlands famous were the first speculative bubble, and nurseries the
first unicorns.

The neat lines of bright hues go
on and on. “The colors are much more intense than you think they are going to
be,” says photographer David Burdeny. “I was taken aback by how bright—almost
fluorescent—they were when the sun hit them.”

Burdeny’s stunning photos capture the
color and symmetry of the landscape and the details of individual blooms.
