After my recent visit to Park Wood to capture the bluebells in the evening light. Today I got up early to witness the flowers at dawn.
The sun creeps up slowly creating pools of light and long shadows across the woodland floor.
Park Wood is near the small City of Wells in Somerset. The UK contains half the worlds population of bluebells and is one of our nations favourite flowers. The wood certainly looked beautiful this morning with hundreds of bluebells lining its paths.
As the sun clears the neighbouring hills the woodland floor is bathed in the light coloured as it passes through the growth of fresh leaves. This green light changes the colours of bluebells becoming more purple.
The last few wood anemones still share the wood with the bluebells. As the sun reaches the flowers they begin to open ready for the day.
Dappled light scatters through the wood.
These bluebells growing on a old tree stump.
Probably the my last wood anemone picture of the year.
