Early One Morning... by pasttheirprime

Early One Morning...

One of us had to do a full-on bluebell shot, and after a bit of a tussle between myself and Lee, it turned out to be me. Unfortunately, it meant a 5am get up, and I'm not very good at those, so the rest of the day was a bit of a write-off...

But I wasn't disappointed. West Woods, near Marlborough in Wiltshire, is a truly beautiful spot, particularly early in the morning when there's no one around to disturb the peace and quiet. Except, that is, for the little deer that wandered behind me a few feet away as I snapped a few shots. Sublime...

Also on Flickr, a little more detail: https://www.flickr.com/photos/snaggy_/26804481071/in/datetaken-public/lightbox/

Unfortunately I can only fav this once - wish it could be more. So magical and an unforgettable experience for you too. Could I get up at that time? Not sure. I admire your dedication.

Gorgeous. Worth the effort of the early morning. I hope you feel that way! I'll bet Lee would have slept in and missed it. fav

@allycoxon @flowerfairyann @jeffinvt @rennes @dyanstevens @cmp @nadaa @kwind @izzyromilly @julzmaioro @motherjane Thanks you all for the kind comments and favs.
@sheilaj Thank you! But by the way, Lee would definitely have not slept in - he's always posting great early morning shots! He just had further to travel than me otherwise I'm sure he would have pipped me to it!
