My e mail is pauladavies (at) mac.com. Many thanks.

Hi Paula, welcome to EPZ, I hope you enjoy your time on this site as much as I do.
If you would like to find out about meeting other enthusiasts, try clicking on Forums then going down to ePHOTOzine Members Meetings and Events. I'm sure there'll be someone in your neck of the woods.

Hi Paula, Welcome. The woods between Ashridge and Ivinghoe, fairly near Berkhamsted, are usually carpeted with bluebells. I usually spend some time there as I don't live too far away in Aylesbury. The woods are full of photographers, its hard to keep them out of your pics. Quite a few from Ephotozine usually go there.

Probably as many photographers as there are Bluebells in Ashridge however it is a stunning place.

I have been driving around Kent last week and Dorset/Wilts and the Cirencester area this week - all the bluebell woods I passed were still distinctly green......the cold spell will be slowing things down a bit. Patience is called for! Wink

Thanks for replying - its just that some are already out in our garden - must be the SW London warmth factor!

I was photographing some last week down in Tehidy Woods in Cornwall. Not fields full of them, but enough to be interesting.

Hi, Steveb do you have a more exact location for the woods a road name maybe, so I can go along and check them out. Paula

There are some details here on the epz Locations feature for Ashridge
If you zoom in on the map you should be able to find your way there Smile

Hi all,
just got back from Ashridge.
The flowers are starting to emerge up by Ivinghoe common (see latest upload) but it is at least a week until they are fully out.
None out at the Berkhamsted end of Ashridge yet.

I haven't had time to drop by Ashridge yet, but last Sunday I saw some blue and starting to come out near Ibstone, Stokenchurch. Saw similar by the Henley to Marlow road, but none in the woods coming into Henley from Oxford.

No change at Ashridge since Marks post. I had a look last night on the way home, the bluebells still have a way to go. With the current cold spell, I doubt they'll be ready to photograph next weekend, certainly not now. The usual 'bluebell no parking by the side of the road' signs are already up.
