Bluebell and acer

By oldgreyheron      
A different perspective on a different acer - this one grows in the partial shade of two others. I'm not sure of the cultivar - it's cascading and dome forming. The bluebells are the invasive Spanish variety - they persist in many different parts of the garden.

1/50s f5.6 ISO 100

It's the big match tonight - those in the NE will know to what I refer. A good chance to get on with other things whilst others worry about the outcome!

There's a good contrast of colours and textures, here, which makes for a good subject.
