Bluebells ICM

I paid one last visit to Quendon Woods this morning to take some Intentional Camera Movement images before the bluebells go over, they are defiantly past their best. The ICM technique is something that has attracted me for some time but I realise that it is a bit of a Marmite thing, you either love it or loathe it. Anyway this is my latest effort. 







Finally this next image is a creation within Photoshop and came from a perfectly sharp image. It can be seen as the first image in my post of the 20th April, 17 “Quendon Woods”

Quendon Wood Bluebells

The light looked good this morning so I popped out for an hour to my local bluebell wood. I know I have been doing nothing else this last week or so but take bluebells, they are only out for such a short time. Unfortunately it was windy so it limited my exposure times.

Quendon & Rickling

I returned to my local wood for another go at shooting the bluebells, again we had subdued light with the occasional sunny spell. I am hoping that I will get one more go before the flowers go over so I am now going to wait for a brighter day.










I met a lady walking her English Setters, this one just laid down whilst we had a chat so I just could not resist taking a couple of shot and as promised I have put them on my blog.


To finish off the session, just opposite where I  park was this tree in full blossom.

Gusted Hall Wood


Whilst visiting family I was told about this wood with loads of bluebells so I paid a quick visit and took a few sample shots. The light today was very flat so I intend to revisit this wood as soon as the light improves.

Quendon Woods

I decided to go back to the bluebell wood just outside Quendon and Rickling  I had visited yesterday. I was not happy with yesterday’s results. The light today was muted & for the purposes of these shots it turned out to be an improvement. Today I used two different lenses a 16-35 & 70-200. I used a tripod and took better care with the focusing and the depth of field. I have been told that these bluebells should improve over the next two weeks so I will pick another day and visit this wood one more time before they disappear.

Bluebell Wood

I visited the bluebell wood at Quendon and Rickling as I had heard that the bluebells were out a bit early this year. The light was not that good so I will return hopefully with the family soon.



I met these two ladies taking a walk through the wood, they asked me to take a few pictures of them with their mobile phone, having done that I offed to take a few shots for them with my camera. I have put these on my blog for them.
