I posted a not dissimilar image previously but whereas that one was taken with sunlight dappling the forest floor, this one was captured in the evening when that part of the forest was in shadow.
I think the bluebell colour is the more natural and truer in this version.
V 2 is added so that the comparison can be made with V 1.........V 2 captured in low evening sunlight, the colour less accurate I feel

Details for V 1: see EXIF

Many thanks to all who supported my last posting " From Out of the Gloom........": I am delighted it seemed to please so many.

Quite agree Ronnie. The evening sun version is the truer colour. I do like the contrast with the Ramsons in V1 though.

V1 is without doubt the better cooler image of this lovely meadow Ronnie and V2 has it's charm too with the warm feeling of a fine evening in a favourite place. Lovely comparison images for us to enjoy.
