Bluebell time is here

Its Bluebell season again - everyone loves this time of year do they not? the freshness of the vegetation, the vigour of the growth, the blossom, the colour, the scents, birds singing - oh joy. I do love bluebells, they carpet the floor of Spring's Cathedral.

Anyway I want to share a few bluebell pics to get the mood going. They are a perenially favourite subject of course and many of us with our new fangled cameras get out there at some point and have a go at doing justice to their delightful presence. How often though do the results fall short of delivering a sense of how beautiful they seemed at the time. I have taken more mediocre pictures of bluebells than I care to remember so don't think its an easy subject - for sure its not.

A few tips - try to bring in another element to the picture like trees ferns, dykes etc and I tend to think its probably not worth trying the close up thing unles you really know what you are doing - they tend to all look the same. Otherwise damp conditions are better than dry also try late and early in the day and don't wait till they are going over. Bluebells forever!
