Twin Bluebells Angmering

Twin Bluebells Angmering

With winter starting with the first cold snap I thought now was a good time to go back to Spring and a Bluebell shot. Sussex in the south of England has some of the best displays of wild bluebells in the UK. This location is one of the best there is on the South Downs near Angmering at Angmering Park Woods a little east of Patching. In the middle of the woods there is a carpet of Bluebells as far as the eye can see.

With bluebells I like to get in close. This shot is of the wild original English variety with a bell shape and the flowers on one side of the stems unlike the invading Spanish variety which grow upright with flowers on both sides.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A550 with a Sigma 28-80 zoom. Settings were f5.6 and 80mm for reduced depth of field. I used the A550 for its folding screen to make it easier to get a low down image. The image is comprised of 28 images focus stacked in Photoshop. The 28 images were taken on a Tripod using manual focusing and small adjustments of the focus ring.
