Bluebell Remnants

Yesterday I went for a hike along Furnace Run in the Cuyahoga Valley to photograph the Virginia Bluebells. I've been shooting and blogging about the bluebells for a long time so I try to mix it up each year - using different cameras and film stocks, shooting at different times of day, and in different weather conditions. The differentiating factor this year is that I came far past their peak - no big field of blue shots. I pretty much had to track down the late bloomers. This challenge though, does set these images apart from the blue-out conditions of other seasons.
Anyways - it was good to get out for a hike with my camera. With all the cycling I've done the last few years nature photography has really taken a backseat.

Interesting to see the touch of pink in these - even though many from the cluster have already dropped.
'Bokeh for Days' - Google it.

"Trillium" - usually when I am out capturing the bluebells at their peak the trilliums are white - it was cool to see them dressed in pink.
