Woodland Bluebell Angmering

Woodland Bluebell Angmering
The Shot

More Tulips still to come but meanwhile a change though still on the delayed spring theme. Normally Bluebells are at peak in late April. This year it is mid May. Sussex in the south of England has some of the best displays of wild bluebells in the UK. This location is one of the best there is on the South Downs near Angmering at Angmering Park Woods a little east of Patching. In the middle of the woods there is a carpet of Bluebells as far as the eye can see.

With bluebells I like to get in close and focus on one. This shot is of the wild original English variety with a bell shape and the flowers on one side of the stem unlike the invading Spanish variety which grow upright with flowers on both sides.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A550 with a Sigma 28-80 zoom. Settings were f5.6 and 80mm for reduced depth of field. I used the A550 for its folding screen to make it easier to get a low down image. One RAW image was opened in Photoshop Camera RAW first to create 2 extra exposures for HDR at 2EV separation.
