April Projeck: Spring flowers

Posted on April 8, 2017


Down here in Devon, Spring seems to have arrived early this year. The rain in March has given way to April sunshine and stimulated a host of wild flowers to bloom; including bluebells and wild garlic. Check back to this page thorough April and May as there will be regular updates as I document the flowering of Spring in North Devon.

Dazzling Daffs


Fern uncurling

Bird Nest Fern

Magnolia in Croyde

Cuckoo flower

Primroses & celandine underneath a budding oak

Early wild garlic

First of the Longlands bluebells

Bluebells in full bloom


Gorse under the nearly full moon


Really full display of bluebells and wild garlic this year

Grey skies over Exmoor

But glorious sunshine in May at Woolacombe

Thats it.

Thanks for coming back.

Footnote. I bought the 100 f2 for portraiture work and even though it’s an old design is tack sharp from f4 through to f8 and beyond. It has been the star of the show in these wild flower shots, the bokeh is gorgeous, so creamy, buttery and smooth. Recommended.
