I love being in a bluebell wood.
I especially enjoy being among the beautiful bluebells as early morning sunlight lightly tickles the flowers along the forest floor.
This photograph was taken in a bluebell wood nurtured by the National Trust. Having arrived at the wood for sunrise I was surprised to find half a dozen photographers up and about taking their images.
The warm yellow sunlight shimmered through the edges of the wood lighting up patches of flowers and little pathway among the blooms.
There were a few longer trails through the trees, and this particular one had a wooden gate at the end. The gateway opened onto rolling green fields and a woodland further on.
Noticing the colours of the blue flowers, the yellow sunlight and the bright green leaves I tried to capture something of the feeling of the beauty in front of me.
This image is actually two overlaid photographs. One with motion and the other static. I then blended the two and put all of the leaves back in from the static image in their correct positions. It took some time.
To get the motion photograph involves moving the camera when the shutter is open - something that 'you are not supposed to do'. But gives a great effect!
The final image is very pleasing to the eye and won a 'highly commended' at the International Photographer of the Year 2017.
