Well it was two weeks ago. Every year there is always a few weeks in the spring when the woodland in the south of England bursts into a beautiful blue colour scheme. The Bluebells have arrived. Despite trying many times over the years, I have never yet got an image that I thing nails what

Yesterday’s trip to the New Forest was my first photography outing of 2023. However, the weather did not rise to this auspicious occasion and remained dull, Gray and flat all morning.
