The Netherlands offer so much more than Amsterdam and tulips. Most tourists do not take the opportinity to visit the heather field, which especillay in august, are very beautiful as shown by these spectacular photos by Albert Dros.
It usually starts mid or early Augusts and lasts until the end of the month, and it turns a lot of areas completely purple. What am I talking about? The heather plants. Compare it to the France’s Lavender fields that start a couple of weeks earlier in July. The purple heather fields in the Netherlands are a dream for any landscape photographer. Combine them with mist and you’ve got yourself a dreamscape that looks like it popped straight out of a fairytale.
