Bluebell Wood

By Paul_CA
Evening bluebells lit with a flash (or two) bungeed to nearby trees. Problem hereabouts is that there are just too many damn trees and they just add so much clutter to an image. Choices then, carry a chainsaw in the camera bag or blur the buggers out with a couple of exposures as here - a little more work but less weight in the camera bag Wink

Lovely shot and the blurring works really well.

I have similar problems in Castle Eden Dene here in Durham. Incredibly atmospheric place but the sheer density of the trees makes it bloody difficult to finding a perspective that gives you good separation of foreground and background.
