Fine art photography of bluebells


Its that time of year again….perhaps a little earlier than usual, but these distinctive fairy bells are already starting to appear in certain corners of the woods and will join together to form a carpet of lilac-blue in just a few weeks.



An etheral moment of cloudburst that brings the other-worldly into the realms of camera focus; although I admit to having worked to bring this image back to something close to what I saw with my eyes. When I play with a photograph, the long-standing painter in me sets about the task much like I am used to doing with oils; working in layers to refind the colour and nuance that I know is there, dipping my “brush” into these effects to add and remove colour, tone and light just as I would do on a canvas.
