Ashridge bluebells - at dusk

I had a wonderful evening yesterday wandering through acres of bluebells at Ashridge Forest, just a few minutes from home.


I stayed until the sun went down.


This is a long exposure (about 10 seconds - look close you can see the movement in the foreground and in the leaves, especially on the left) looking into the dark wood interior. I'll post about a dozen more looking back into the light too. The exposure brought out the colours, so very little "playing" with this shot.


I could never tire of this place. Everyone you meet there is smiling - the sort of place it's not possible to be miserable at!!!


I hope you like it.
