During the bluebell season I find myself taking lots of photos. Some of them get shared on Instagram and others get filed safety on a hard-drive never to be seen again.
This year I thought I’d change that by sharing them here and talking about them. Some of them I like and others I would have done something a little bit different.
Hopefully this is a bit of a learning experience for all of us.
There are things I like about this first photo such as the lighting, and the colours in the leaves. Equally there is a lot I’m not so keen on, the brambles on the left put me off and the fallen tree doesn’t actually add anything. I think it almost cuts the image off and is too over powering with it going from left to right.
I like quite a few things about this image, the sunlight, the pathway and the trees adding an interest. I think the pathway looks inviting and leaves you wondering where it goes. I think this is one of my favourites from this year.
Similar to the previous image but this edges it slightly due to the path being off centre. I think this makes it a little bit more interesting. The green of the trees and grass really add a vibrance to the scene. The tree on the left might put a few off and it may have been a better photo if it wasn’t there.
Out of the two fallen tree images this is such a better photo. I believe this is because the fallen tree goes from front to back and leads you into the photo. The added moss on the trunk also gives it a nice texture. It ticks all the boxes for me, sunlight, colour, bluebells and a subject.
I think this was one of the first bluebell photo I took of the year. I like to get one in the bag early, it feels like the pressure is off. I love the colours in this one and the sunlight adding shadows to the scene. You can see the whole woodlands covered in flowers and I think that adds an interest.
Another early photo, this one I’m not so keen on. The view is too messy with all the trees, I think it would have been ok if the clump of trees on the left weren’t there but hey never mind.
My final image for this collection. It might be one of my favourites, I like the moody feel of it, its not so bright as the others but I think that’s what I like about it. The trees either side of the picture work well to frame and draw you in. I also like the fact that it appears that the bluebells go on forever.
That completes My Bluebell Photos of 2019, I hope you like them and please let me know which ones are your favourites.
