Solitary Bluebell

By climbing_orchid
Evening All!!

I know you are all sick and tired of bluebells but this is the first one I have uploaded this year so you will have to let me off!!!

I have gone for a less conventional composition with this one and have tried to incorporate some dark moodiness that is often associated with woodland

This was taken handheld with natural light at Black Rock, Cheddar on Sunday and has been tweaked sightly to enhance the contrasts

Have a great evening

not sick & tired of bluebells : never : they're beautiful per se
they deserve your processing :
your "dark moodiness" is... let's say : stunning...
