Springtime has finally arrived in the woodlands of North Yorkshire with fresh new pea green leaves on the trees and a carpet of beautiful bluebells below. Add a touch of sunlight and it's a glorious sight to see but faced with such a mass of leaves trees and flowers it is hard to create a "picture" and a pleasing composition, the twist in the path was just the element I was needing and the fact it disappears into nowhere but the wood added an extra touch of mystery which sealed it for me.

Nice Sam, no where near as good a bloom as this in Farnhill Woods.

Looks very much like a Freeman Patterson image. He is a Canadian photog of some renown, so this must be a compliment then. TG

Nice location. I prefer to take these when there is more cloud cover so there is less contrasty light across the flowers, but you sometimes don't get the choice. I agree with your comment about trying to find the 'picture' Smile

Thank you all very much for the lovely comments and votes, I'm delighted to see so many have enjoyed it.

John , I called by there before coming to this wood and as you say the display wasn't as good as it can be.

Dark Lord I know what you mean but for me the sunlight is as much a part of the scene as the rest since it gives the airy feel that spring has and lovely leaf shadows on the trees. Losing that by virtue of
shooting when it is dull which it was at times when I was there doesn't appeal to me personally.

Tony, I will have to look Freeman up as I don't know of him but I thank you for the compliment given.
