Woodland landscape (with bluebells!)

“That picture could go an Easter card.” So said Mrs Adams when she looked over my shoulder as I was editing this image of a typical spring, woodland landscape.

A woodland landscape image good enough for an Easter card

It was all the endorsement I needed. In fact, I’m glad Mrs Adams made the comment because I wasn’t too sure whether I should use this image. Despite looking very simple, it was actually quite a demanding photograph to edit and it had taken several attempts to produce something I was happy with.

I’ll let you into the secret (do skip this paragraph if you don’t want the geeky detail!). It’s actually a composite of four images of the same woodland landscape. Each of them was taken using different settings in manual mode and the camera was mounted on a tripod. I put each image on top of the previous one, but I used a technique where I “painted” the image in so you’re only seeing about 60% of the image underneath.

The bluebells (who doesn’t love a bluebell pic at this time of year?) are very eye catching, but I think it’s worth taking a moment or two to take a look at the trees in the background. The green colours are so vibrant and if you look closely, there is some amazing detail.

I could also tell you that I turned up to take the photographs but found I had no SD card in the camera so had to dash off and buy one, but I won’t. That would just make me sound a bit daft wouldn’t it? That said, If you like the image and you want a seasonal, woodland landscape to adorn next year’s Easter card, you know where to come!

As I usually do with my photography posts, I’ve added this to the #MySundayPhoto blog linky.

  1. Arh at last the bluebells, which I have missed again this year, sorry but they’re too late for Easter surely. Whoops to the forgotten SD card, something I’ve done myself on more than one occasion. #mysundayphoto

    1. I did wonder about the bluebells being a bit late for Easter but, ya know, it was only a few weeks ago!

    1. They certainly make for good photographs! If you’re a blogger with an interest in photography, there’s an unwritten law you will publish the one image featuring bluebells each year if you’re lucky enough to live near them.

  2. What a pretty scene. It really could go on some sort of card. I wouldn’t have guessed it was made up of 4 different images. How clever. x

    1. Yes indeed, four images. Mrs Adams couldn’t figure out what on Earth I was up to at first as I was editing it!

  3. Cracking image John, I really like it. I’ve never tried blending photos together. I’ve always gone for the merge to grab light and dark from 3 different images.
