Good Morning Everyone,
Spring Wood is an ancient woodland where, at this time of year, the ground is carpeted with bluebells.
Bluebells thrive in a shady environment but, as you come to photograph them, the importance of light manifests itself. It is the contrast of the two that gives the photograph its punch!
The shade for the bluebells; the light for me!
Have a lovely day, Bev :-)

Another beauty from the woods. Excellent POV and framing. The three trees are almost moving among the flowers. Very attractive.

Another great capture from these bluebell woods. Light management is excellent and the colours most attractive. Fine composition as well using the three trees to draw the viewer inwards.

another delightful bluebee shot. It captures the magic and atmosphere of a woodland walk at this time of the year succinctly. Wonderful!
Raining and blowing a gale here on the south coast!

Ce qui frappe en premier dans ce très beau cadrage vertical ce sont les fleurs au sol d'un très beau bleu qui tranche sur le vert environnant.Une très jolie lumière qui perce jusqu'au sol.

Another very fine picture of these beautiful bluebells. The three trees are very good in this picture as they are standing along a diagonal line.

The wild blue flowers on the ground is so beautiful. The combination of the shadows and light is soft and inviting. Thanks for showing us.

These bluebells created an extremely beautiful scene in the forest! Totally unique and original in my opinion. Like your POV and the composition with a diagonal layout built by the three trees. Very well done!

l'association du bleu et du vert est superbe. Une belle capture colorée et lumineuse.

I love the phrase ancient woodland, it summons up such cool images of times past, Druids and magical places. When I look at the way you have composed this, the three trees make me think of the three Fates of ancient legend, spinning, weaving and cutting the destiny of man. They have tired of the human world, taken root and live now here in an ancient woodland, with only this blue carpet to mark the importance of the place. They each seem be vying for a view and do seem to be almost jostling for position, cool shot, thanks as always.

Ciao cara Beverley
lo stesso soggetto della foto precedente ripreso da altra angolazione, ma sempre affascinante nella contrapposizione tra il colore delicato dei fiori, il verde della vegetazione e il severo aspetto dei tronchi.
Anche in questa ottima gestione della luce con colori e contrasto ben gestiti.
Ciao e buona notte

Being stuck in the middle of the desert and surrounded by a rather drab landscape this time of year, I've thoroughly been enjoying seeing the Spring time photos from around the globe...particularly the bluebells. A fine display you have put together here, and the dancing light and shadow make the entire scene come alive. I can virtually smell the fresh, airy forest floor...these woodland areas must make for quite an enjoyable walk around. Too bad it's not like this year round, right? Oh well, glad you've taken advantage of it while you can...and better yet, have to decided to share it with the rest of us. :) Enjoy the new day. Take care.

looking at the pictures with bluebells posted recently on TE makes me jealous a bit that we have already passed the flowery period in Greece. The abundance of these charming blue treasures indeed makes an impression of lovely and soft carpet woven by the nature. I like that apart from photographing this place you also paid attention to the light and made the most of it. It definitely helps to create the mood of the image and the delicate shadows add some more depth.
Well framed and with excellent sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

another lovely bluebell scene. The diagonal line of trees is a good compositional too. I would like though to see bluebells in the bottom right corner as it is a bit bare. I really must go looking for bluebells tomorrow as you've inspired me.

Ciao dear Bev
Ahh another beauty, such a rare sight for me, who has never seen bluebells in full bloom in reality before. I'll have to make do with your lovely photos until I do. Which suits me fine. Excellent vertical frame, stunning light and an exquisite mood. One couldn't ask for more.
Thanks for sharing and I wish you a lovely evening

Splendid forest with the bluebells carpet. Great vertical format and nice light with the trees shadows. I like it!

Great light management: the picture has
nice bright colors, no hard shadows and
there are no overlighted pieces. The
composition is also great. The vertical
position emphasize extra the depth.
