We managed to get out for an hour on Monday 21st April, I wanted to see how the Bluebells were doing so we went up to Piddles wood. It was very busy as it was a pleasant morning and of course a Bank holiday but most people were walking their dogs and soon disappeared into the woods.

I stayed around the car park area as there was plenty of opportunities for taking photos. I also took more or less the same comosition with my infrared camera, I know it takes the colour out but it gives a different feel to an image, sort of mystical.

I took a couple more using the path again in the composition, it’s very difficult to get a ‘good’ picture of Bluebells. I like the way the light was coming through the trees in the images below.

Sturminster Newton Mill

We decided to go back home via Sturminster Mill we would be early enough to still have the sunlight on the mill, later in the day it goes into shade. Unfortunately we couldn’t gat across to the field on the other side as it was closed, probably to do with the winter floods. I could have walked round but we only had a short while so we just wandered around and i took some various views using my infra red camera. I took some images different from the usual front view of the Mill.

Again I’ve done an ordinary exposure and an infra red exposure to show the different style of photography.
