Bluebells

Nothing spells spring more than dappled light falling on an English Bluebell wood and of course this is a busy time for photographers.

More than half the worlds population of Bluebells grow in the UK and Emmets Garden in Kent is as good a place as any to see them in their glory.

The Bluebells have appeared all of a sudden this year due to a short but record breaking period of glorious weather in mid April.

The deep blue flowers of the native English Bluebell contrast well with the fresh green leaves of the Birch trees that are just coming to leaf.

 

And of course always worth a try with the fisheye.
