This weeks theme was chosen by our newest member of the group Loc Lam. The theme is "Bloom" Having started my working life as a horticulturist you'd think I'd have no problem with this theme, but I actually found it hard to think of a shot. Chris was quick off the mark with a beautiful series of close up shots, followed by Eje with a very interesting IR image, so that set the bar pretty high.
Yesterday I went for a walk with Max around a local woodland, and as usual I was dragging round a fair bit of camera gear with us. It was then I came across this patch of Bluebells, They aren't quite all out yet as I think it's still a little early, but with them and the interesting tree I though it would make an image that sits well in the theme.
I will more than likely pop back to this location soon, unassisted by my little helper so I can spend a little more time looking for a good location and waiting for some decent light. When I took this it was very bright afternoon sun, that hasn't done a lot for the contrast of the image.
As usual check out the other guys work, I've omitted a couple of links this time until the guys catch up because I don't want to keep sending yo to the same page all the time. I'll re link when they get the time to catch up and there is something new for you to look at.
