Springtime in the woods

Oh the woods are coming alive! Hear the birds singing their sweet songs. The rustles in the undergrowth as tiny beaks hunt out the best nesting materials and morsels of food. Blue skies, sunshine on a perfectly still day. All I needed were study boots, a good coat and my camera to capture my highlights. Hope you enjoy them too.

Eyes to the sky

Look up, chin up, eyes to the sky. Stay inspired and breathe easy. Take care of yourself.

Mud splashed

Knowing how pretty the backdrop would be, I wanted to take some outfit pictures in the bluebell woods but the weather was just so cold. Looking back, I have been in bare legs at this time in previous years but I was adamant that thermal tights and a thick jumper were a must for this time. It's not the most exciting of looks but at least I'm warm and comfortable.

Big muddy boots keep it a particularly down to Earth ensemble as we had to navigate some distinctly boggy ground. The rain from a week or so ago (and all winter) had lingered in the ground and with all the extra visitors the blooms bring in it all gets churned up in a squelchy mess. Who cares about mud-splashed tights when you get a view like this?

I could really appreciate some warmer weather now, seriously!

Bluebells and mirth

That magical time is upon us when the forest floor is covered in beautiful swathes of blue. I can't believe my eyes when I see so many millions, or billions... they enthral and excite me. My inner child dances in circles and laughs with joy, enjoys mirth. It's a special time of year. Sometimes I wish I could bottle it to preserve it for a miserable day when I need it's wonder the most then I realise my photographs are all I need; looking back through pictures is a treat.

The startling blue haze is all consuming of the floor in the woodland; sweeping under trees and flooding further than the eye can see.







Such delicate frilly bells in blue; a concerto in ringing out for the climax of spring. Ding dong!





Excuse me while I relish in the best of spring <3 p="">Sophie
