This tulip is shades of Marsala, the Pantone color of the year for 2015. Photographed from above, the stem and leaves are hidden, giving this image an abstract quality. The shape of the tulip repeats in the blurred ground cover below, which is various shades of pink.
This flower was shot in April 2014 in one of the many gardens at Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo, Italy on the shore of Lake Como. April is an ideal time of year to visit Northern Italy if you wish to see Spring bulbs in bloom. The image links to my Fine Art America site.
