Very nice image Lee, rather mystical..!

Don't you get many bluebells in Holland Els? Because of the weather, I've not had chance to go out and photograph them yet, hopefully I'll not miss them this year, they did come early this year though, usually its about now they are everywhere, I'm sure I'll capture some :) I only found these more by chance Els, we were driving by this wood when I saw all the bluebells, so we stopped to investigate. I've never been there before or since. I appreciate the L&F :)

And yes these kinds of woods are rather mystical Lex, the combo of the two colours are really wonderful.

hi Lee, thanks for your reply, we have bluebells, but i never had the chance to get them on the picture.. ( live not that close to the wood.. i think it must be awesome on a misty morning and the first sunrays ....:) but maybe its a dream .. bye!

What a wonderful image Lee, I love the colours, and the subject, of course :-)) Are the trees all the same? Is it a plantation?

Lee Gill on May 17, 2012

I have no idea if its a plantation Caroline, we found this wood by accident, we drove by it and I spotted the bluebell, so we stopped to take a few pics. I didn't have a proper look round, so not sure if all the trees are the same. There are small woods like this all over the UK, and especially in this area as its part of the national forest.
