Bluebell Woods

Photo of the Week 

Photo Information
Went out early last Sunday hoping to get some pics of bluebell's backlit by low sun. Cloud hampered my hopes and then fog came out of nowhere and had to change tack. Don't like to give in easily.

Love it!
Like the way the new green of the leaves balances the blue carpet.

Good job you didn't give in, You would have missed a gift.

Absolutely super shot - almost colour popped, except it isn't. In fact, this is one of the best 'bluebell woods' I have ever seen.

That is stunning. Enter it to LPOTY. Very jealous as I have made several visits in the hope of just these conditions. It could take years to get something this good.

Superb! I agree with DrOrloff - enter it into the LPOTY, it's definitely one of the finest Bluebell images I've ever seen.

I was away last week so missed this when it was first posted.
I'm glad it has been given this recognition of POTW so it has been brought to my attention.
WOW, what a beautiful scene and to think you almost ignored it !
Great work, well done.

Best regards
Peter
