A lovely woodland walk through a carpet of bluebells what a wonderful sight, the colours look fantastic..Like Regards Richard

Yorkshire Sam on July 6, 2012

Thank you Richard, I visited again around the same date this year to emulate this shot but the bells were very dissapointing and the ferns hardly visible and sadly by the time they would be better the wind and rain came so it wasn't to be. Always next time as they say :o)

Appearances are deceptive Ian, that path is actually a leaf filled gulley with water trickling along it hence the moisture loving ferns and I had to straddle it uncomfortably to get this one before stupidly slipping and getting one leg stuck up to my knee in wet gunge.

Glad to see it was to your liking mate,cheers !

Beautiful English woodland scene with lovely colour. Well captured. Regards Derek

I see you mapped yours as well. I was unsure if to map mine in case some pratt went along and tried to dig them all up. Lovely spring view if one can say we had a spring.

Beautiful Sam. Have you thought about something like Skydrive for backup? First 7gb is free and it automatically updates anytime you change anything in your Skydrive folder. You can pay a little more for extra storage

Thank you Derek. KC, I think it would take a huge effort to dig ALL of these up but I know what you mean and had it been an area out of public reach then I may not have added it to the map. Neil, your backup idea is a sound one but my deletion of every image I had ever taken was done deliberately in a moment of deep depression and madness, I only missed the ones I've just found because I didn't know they were there. Luckily I did manage to salvage some of my past stuff with retrieval software but regrettably many have gone for ever because they were overwritten. I am revisiting locations but like most experiences the repeat is never quite like you remember it and a special moment lost is exactly that.

kind regards to all, Sam

Low res or no, path or muddy ditch, still one of the nicest bluebell shots I have seen! ysl. Best wishes from Cornwall, Andy

Cheers Andy,I have to admit I'm very pleased with this one and I don't say that often.

best wishes, Sam

What a lovely carpet Sam, there certainly hasn't been as many this year as we found out that day. I seem to remember you having one taken with Beech trees,have you found that one too??

Yorkshire Sam on July 8, 2012

Cheers Neil, I have found the ones with the beech trees but the one I reckon you are thinking about is only a very small version. Half a loaf is better than nowt mind :o)

Another beauty! Y*. Almost impossible for me to choose between this and your 'beeches' one. I like the seeming concentration of bluebells in the mid-distance here, and the ferns in the foreground. On balance though, I do definitely (slightly!) prefer the beeches one. I like that it's on a slant, which makes it a bit unusual. Also, the beautiful trees have a more prominent role. I prefer the light too. It's in sort of bands, which gives very attractive contrast. As I say, though, difficult to choose.

Best wishes, Brian.

I wasn't touting for comments by the way Brian when I left the link but as always I am grateful for your kind words. I think your reasons for preferring t'other one are sound so let's leave it that they are sufficiently different :o)

Many thanks !

Sam :o)

Fully understand, Sam. Your photos speak for themselves; you don't need to tout for comments! One of the things I like about Panoramio is that it can be a great forum for discussing my hobby - photography! - and by necessity that occasionally involves comparing photos. Anyway, I would have got round to your photo here sooner or later, and still admired it!

Best wishes, Brian.
