Have we been studying Monet recently? I expect Herself will counter with a touch of Goya Blush

Masterful composition and exposure - proper 'pretty' images of bluebells are really hard to achieve, Alan. Anyway you have managed to include some darker element - there's a wood goblin lurking in the bottom right hand corner (the stump looks like a head and shoulders profile to me Wink ) Jacqui

No, but I expect he's been keeping an eye on me.

I may not espouse prettiness (and I was never fond of Velvia colours), but I have reverence for light. That's what this is about, light dancing on shiny little surfaces, fluttering in the breeze.
Tricky composition, with the path and dark trunks at the top of the frame - that little trunk bottom right gives balance. But crop it off entirely and there's a nice landscape composition.
I have a bluebells shot lined up for the town calendar next year, but one shot is quite enough...

Really nice springtime image Alan. You didn't pick any did you I notice a wet weather front approaching NE England and you know what they say about picking bluebells. GrinGrinWink

Bluebell woods, one of the joys of nature. Brings back lots of happy memories Alan. Lovely to see.

So well framed - bluebells are wonderful but always tricky to get a composition.
The inward curve of the tree trunks and those leafy branches work beautifully
and then there are the bluebells themselves.
I'm not ashamed to love .prettiness'.

I, too, would like to see it with the little stump cropped off.
It is like a flowing river without it. And who said blue and green don't go together!!!!!!

Well I certainly didn't. Nor did Gauguin.
But I'm afraid the stump stays put, Joline.Wink

I love that bit of blur on the brightly lit branch. I think of that breeze Moira mentioned. It looks like you may have stepped off the beaten path to capture this beautiful shot. I hope you trod carefully.

full of beauty and life..
i can understand its value even though I live at a place which is green through out the year..
It must have pleased many a souls..

Spring has certainly spring when you see floral carpets like this, Alan!

A great bluebell woodland scene, great light, like this a lotSmile

Don't seem to have many bluebells around here, more's the pity. The blues and greens are beautiful together and the dark tree trunks add structure and depth.

Little stump 'out' for me as well, Alan, it attracts the eye too much when the image is all about light and colour.

23 Apr 2014 7:52AM
you want the stump out, you have to go through me first...

Nothing nicer than a bluebell wood - except for a beautiful shot of the bluebell wood that you can take home and look at for a long time to come. This is sublime and I would have loved to have been there to see this view.
