Abstract Bluebells

Some abstract bluebells for today’s Flower of the Day – I just felt like doing something a bit different… These particular bluebells were nestled under the shade of a tree, and it was dull rather than sunny when I took the original pic so the resulting image looked a bit dull and the colours faded – but a digital art filter helped give my boring old bluebells a new, far more interesting lease of life 🙂

Beautiful Bluebells: Spring 2019

To have such spectacular wildflowers growing so comfortably within a big city is often a surprise to many people, residents and visitors alike, but here are this year’s beautiful bluebells flowering in Chalet Wood, Wanstead Park, East London. Some years they come slightly earlier, and some years they come a bit later, but their breath-taking abundance every spring never fails to make me smile 🙂

All a Bit of a Blur…

Springtime walks to see the local bluebells in Chalet Wood are a bit of an annual pilgrimage for me – every year I take my camera and take some new pictures and, lovely though they are, looking back over my cumulative collection I can see they’re all much of a muchness with nothing really to show which year is which (apart from the image data and which particular camera I’ve used). So after taking my usual picturesque shots this afternoon (watch this space), I also played about with deliberately blurring some shots to see how that looked, and I’m really pleased with the results. A bit trippy to look at, but fun nonetheless 🙂
