Bluebells in Bristol

“A Week from Peak Blue”

Another gem within touching distance of Bristol. There was still a week until the bluebells got to their best, but I was glad to photograph them in these conditions. At first, when I arrived in the woods near Wrington, I tried to avoid including any of the paths. Perhaps it was the jets taking off from Bristol airport a short distance away—interrupting the nature sounds of the forest—but after exploring this small strip of land for 20 minutes, I decided against this approach; the best thing, I decided, was to embrace man’s footprint on the landscape. After the clear path leading you through the scene, and the fresh lime green of the spring leaves in the centre of the frame, my favourite thing about this photograph is the green moss and ivy growing up the beech trees.
