Hampshire Photographers take time to shoot bluebells!


Some verses from The Bluebell 
by Anne Bronte 


A fine and subtle spirit dwells
In every little flower,
Each one its own sweet feeling breathes
With more or less of power. 
There is a silent eloquence
In every wild bluebell
That fills my softened heart with bliss
That words could never tell.

Yet I recall not long ago
A bright and sunny day,
'Twas when I led a toilsome life
So many leagues away;

That day along a sunny road
All carelessly I strayed,
Between two banks where smiling flowers
Their varied hues displayed.

Before me rose a lofty hill,
Behind me lay the sea,
My heart was not so heavy then
As it was wont to be.

Less harassed than at other times
I saw the scene was fair,
And spoke and laughed to those around,
As if I knew no care.

But when I looked upon the bank
My wandering glances fell
Upon a little trembling flower,
A single sweet bluebell.

Camera always at the ready and travelling back from a pre wedding shoot last week I just happened to see these lovely bluebells!  Sadly I didn't have my wellington boots with me and couldn't get in amongst them...the ground was full of stinging nettles and I didn't want to risk my toes getting stung in my sandals!  The sight of me jumping up and down at the side of the road may have made a very good picture for passers by but not so good for my image!  So I did my best with the equipment I had and stood on the edge of the woods!
