And now for something completely different.

taken yesterday evening in White House Folly Wood, near Alnwick.
The effect was done completely in camera, however it is a composite as the bluebells were actually growing across the road.
Having taken the tree trunks in the wood, using the camera blur technique,( slow shutter speed and moving the camera verticallly during the exposure), I then went across to the bluebells and used the same technique, and merged the two images in photoshop.

My idea of an abstract bluebell wood.

As always Thanks for Looking

I can remember many moons ago, long before digital photography was thought about, let alone invented, we had someone visit our Camera Club and he took a lot like this (not two merged together though), with the camera on his tripod and using a slow shutter speed, moved the camera vertically Smile It's very effective, and you've done a great job here, Chant Smile

I've been doing these earlier this year with beech hedges and last week with bluebells.
There weren't many trees in a row where the bluebells were but I didn't think of your approach!
Very well captured and blended.
