Bluebell Wood

posted in: Photography | 19
One evening we drove to our nearest bluebell wood in Perthshire to see the glorious display of  Scottish wildflowers. Time flew! As a result we didn’t even realise that we had spent 1.5 hours there. We just had such a great time photographing the native flowers and the surrounding landscape.

The shadows gently danced across the woodland path and the birds of prey were calling in the sky above.   Below us we could hear the sound of the River Almond gently flowing. While all around was the heady scent from the wild flowers.

I just wish this place was closer to home as it’s my favourite place to visit each May.  

So glad that at last I could share this little piece of nature with my mum!

    Your bluebell wood is just stunning with all of those beautiful flowers. The perfect place to take a picture of your mum – who, by the way, looks lovely too.
    Hope they enjoyed their holiday. 🙂

    Wow, those are some stunning shots of your bluebells! Wish I had a place like that to shoot portraits of my family. I know I said it before, but you do live in a magical, dreamy place. (Glad I popped by here today, as I had forgotten that I wanted to try that impressionist thing.)

    Beautiful images Rosie! I'd love to spend time like this with my Mum but she is almost 2000km away. It sounds like your Dad is a patient man like my husband 🙂
