Here is my contribution to this weeks theme, Woodland Walk.

Image taken in a secluded wood around the corner from my home. I can't wait for spring to come.....it's wet and still cold this morning here in the north of the UK. This image was taken almost 1 year ago, and I havn't seen any sign of bluebells yet!

Tripod used, ISO200 3sec ex at f.25.....a little softness in the bluebells, which is what I was wanting. Difficulty was not burning the highlights, which I think I achieved.

Not much pp, slight crop, +sat, curves, add border, rs and post.

Thanks so much for the themes Helen....

Take care,


I'm off to Italy tomorrow, Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Beautiful scene. Tranquil, peaceful, colourful and very English.

I love it! TFS.


Like the way you've captured the Sun coming through the trees, and the colour of those bluebells is amazing. Can almost hear the birds singing.

So peaceful John,
Good POV and excellent control of lighting.

Hello John,

You're right about the weather!
I'm sure Italy will be much better!

I like this very much!
I'm so glad you haven'y brightened it too much. You have kept the shadowy habit of the bluebell just right! Lovely contrast where the sun rays are peaking through!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Bonjour John,
Super agréable cette vue, ça donne envie de se coucher au milieu de ce tapis de fleurs.
J'aime beaucoup cette luminosité tamisée de sous-bois.
Bon voyage !

Hi John,
This is beautiful-- the bluebells really add such a nice contrast to the greens, well done and TFS Julie

It is like a dream place. Lucky you... going to Italy. Bring great photos from there. Hasta luego.


Hi John,

This is the real mystical atmosphere you hope for in a wood, and those bluebells, a whole blanket of them are just gorgious!
Have a great trip to Italy, you are sure to see some flowers there.
