Just a quickie this evening before heading out to umpire another cricket match (weather permitting). This was taken in early May, a couple of evenings after the Roseberry Topping debacle, at Riccal Dale Woods near Helmsley. The bluebell display here is every bit as good as those at Roseberry with two major differences, one good and one not so good. Riccal Dale is a very steep sided valley, heavily forested, and there is no backdrop to be had that comes anywhere close to the Topping. However, perhaps for that reason, in the two hours or so I was there I didn't see another person and that, at least for me, was a huge bonus. You do have to work hard to create a meaningful composition but I hope, in this case, I have managed it with the strong lines of the tree trunks lit by evening light and the carpet of bluebells leading the eye into the depths of the deep, dark forest. As always, I look forward to reading your comments and thank you for taking the time.
Thanks for all your c & c's on my recent uploads, it was great to have a bit of a debate on the use of the Sigma 10-20mm lens on 'Slipway'. Have a great evening, thanks for dropping by and I will do my best to catch up when the match has finished or when rain stops play whichever is the sooner.
