'Last Light'

Normally I would not use Velvia for Bluebells. Velvia is a wonderful choice of film towards dawn or dusk but not really with bluebells where I would tend to favour provia because it is more neutral. Here, however I chose to make an exception.

The tree was lit up like a beacon by the last seconds of the day's light. It was glowing so brightly red that almost without thinking I reached for a sheet of velvia. I knew it would hold the wonderful colour and texture in the tree.

Technical Details - Linhof Technikardan, 240mm lens, no filtration. Velvia 100. Scanned with an Epson V700.

Available as a greetings card.

Location: Ashridge Forest, Hertfordshire
