Spring in Guessgate Wood near Steyning in West Sussex, England, with the bluebells in full bloom and carpeting the woodland floor under clear blue skies.
This image celebrates my 4 year anniversary today as a member of the TE community. Once again I take this opportunity to say a BIG thank-you to you all for your inspiration, continued interest and of course kind comments and smiles. Gulp! - Cannot believe another year has passed.

happy anniversary! Your gallery has quickly become of the best here on TE. It teaches us all about how with original perspective on sometimes simple objects one can turn them into a work of art.
Lovely composition with the carpet of the flowers in the foreground. You had a great light there. Great processing too.

Ciao dear Brian
How time flies, I remember when you were just a baby-TE'er. And what a great time it's been. here's to many many more happy years here on this great site. A sensational photo to celebrate with. It's absolutely flawless and so beautiful it almost hurts! Stunning colours, both from the sky, the bluebells and the surrounding greenery. The textures are amazing and this is a magazine-quality image. Congratulations, I will now have a cold beer or 5 in your honour...well maybe after I finish work ;)

Magnifique contraste des couleurs des fleurs et des arbres. La lumière donne un bel effet à l'ensemble. Bien fait.
jjcordier (77620) 2014-05-14 21:10
De quoi faire un joli bouquet pour célébrer comme il se doit ces 4 années passées avec nous et, surtout, pour te remercier pour toutes ces magnifiques photos (comme celle du jour) que tu partages avec nous.

Congratulations for your 4 years on TE! Always beautiful photos to offer, this one is a very good choice for the event.
Fantastic forest with the flowers carpet.I like it!
I hope still you have many years of sharing here.

Congratulations on four years, as I read your note, I did a time lapse in my mind of this view, with the bluebells growing at speed, retreating, summer coming and going. Autumn falling and then snow gracing the ground before the bluebells return once more. Time sure does fly, but for the photographer there to capture scenes like this going past unnoticed.
Wow, that's a maudlin comment, sorry!
I've sure been enjoying your posts anyway Brian, beautiful to view the world through your lens, and inspiring ideas on shotsi could look for too. Thanks for that, and thanks for sharing,
Have a good Friday
jcpix (13722) 2014-05-15 18:55
I've had a tough go of it this week keeping caught up on the TE world, but I'd be remiss if I didn't stop and congratulate you on the 4 year mark....and so "Congrats" big man! Great shot to hit the anniversary, another stunning capture in that enchanted forest. You've provided awesome work, and here's to many more to follow!
Take it easy. Be good....well, you know. ha
Cheers from the Valley of the Sun,

my Best Congratulations to Your 4th anniversary on TE!
Wonderful shot for this special occasion-vivid colors and the light create together really unique,magic mood of the scene.
Have a nice day

Four years eh Brian?!
These days you get less for murder! Another greatr seasonal image from you with such lovely bluebells that seem to be surrounding me on all sides up where I live - I have yet to photograph them though since I think everyone else is doing so - a case of diffused responsibility and vicarious satisfaction form shots such as yours!
Barcelona again next week - problem is knowing what to shoot when I pretty much did it do death last year!

Hello Brian - I missed this (along with many other beautiful shots) while I was away. Congratulations on your 4 years and for your dedication to the site. Your work always shows creativity and quality and I have learned much from your posts.
A beautiful celebratory shot with all the delights of a bluebell woodland presented. This is one that speaks to my soul.
Angshu (56292) 2014-05-30 1:02
Much belated congratulations on your 4th anniversary in TE. Your pictures are inspirations and delightful to watch, and you have been showing your country in a way I have not seen before...
I like the play of light and shade and the blue bells create a beautiful impression. Lovely exposure to create this picture...
Was just wondering why not in the landscape format for this picture?
jmdias (57219) 2014-06-13 7:26
excellent vertical compo showing at same time the marvelous savage flowers and these trunks and branches reaching the blue sky, that is a complement of the colors of the flowers. nice moment of nature and excellent job. TFS
