I love tulips and Longwood has one of the best displays each year. The problem is trying to get a shot with no one in it,so I always take my tripod and shoot several duplicate shots with each section devoid of people. For example I watched the area with the trees and made sure I had a shot clear of any people,then I watched the center and then the left side with the bushes. Even using this technique,it still takes some waiting,but it is worth the effort. There were at least twenty people here with me in this area,and the worst was one guy who parked his scooter right in the middle while he walked as slow as a snail through the garden. He finally left and I could finish my shot.
