BLUEBELLS – The Official Picture Thread of 2011
ltheisinger – surely that’s not very recent? It looks beautiful and nice dogs too. 🙂
redthunder – a good show there too. 8)
I shall be taking the camera to my favourite bluebell wood, last week only a few were out and there’s bound to be more by now.
Keep those pics coming. 😀Posted 6 years ago
Hmmm … today I visited my favourite bluebell wood and am not really sure what’s going on. ❓
Whilst we’ve enjoyed sunny weather, there has been a chilly breeze around all week varying from northerly to easterly. Bluebells appeared to be either past their best or half dead. Very little perfume too. 🙁
I then headed to some other woods that normally have decent displays and it was a bit of a mixed bag there. Perhaps it’s just too early for them in this neck of the woods?
No pics, sorry!Posted 6 years agocuckooSubscriber
I was in some of the usual haunts for bluebells in my neck of the woods today but many of the plant colonies have been decimated by mountain bikers who have carved new trails straight through them.
Must have been about half a dozen new trails that I saw today that didn’t used to be there. Sad to see.Posted 6 years ago
It’s sucks when people trample them 🙁 I never ride on them or make any new trails where I know any bluebell glades etc. exist or are likely going to be.
Sometimes, bulb collectors can clear a wood in one sitting.
Roe Deer seem also to be giving them a good kicking as well 🙁Posted 6 years ago

Fat bikes on a trail, whatever next? 😉
redthunder – I could just about make out some tiny singletrack there, it was a legit trail wasn’t it? Of course, you were so overcome by the beauty and scent. 😀
Now, be honest, have you, er, ‘adjusted’ those pics cos they are incredibly vibrant?

(feeling everyone has better bluebells)
There is a fine ribbon of track. I’d never ride through Bluebells deliberately.
As for photo tweaks. Most of my pics go throug Picasa and I do a sligh adjust with staruration, colour temp and shadow to show them how I see them on the day as my camera swashes the image out a bit.
Compare the following two and tell me what you think:

redthunder, yes I can see a difference. You do seem to enjoy a great display in Gloucestershire. 🙂
Here’s some from today in Hampshire but, again, not at their best. It must be due to the chilly nights and easterly daytime winds. The area I was in is low-lying and does tend to be cooler.
