DSPS Days Out – A visit to Trench Wood Bluebells

Sunday 4th May was a perfect day for photography in Trench Wood. The weather had been dry for several days and the sun was shining, giving a wonderful dappled light through the trees; the going underfoot was not too muddy! A group of keen photographers, from Droitwich Spa Photographic Society, gathered in the small car park and walked through the woods to where there was a magnificent display of English Bluebells whichever way you looked. Chiffchaffs could be heard warbling in the treetops and Pheasants were vocal and seen wandering through the bluebells; Roe Deer were spotted drifting noiselessly between the trees. Trench Wood is a fairly large woodland of around 42 hectares so there was plenty space for everyone to try and get that perfect bluebell shot! Tripods and lenses came out of the bags and all were able to lose themselves in the tranquillity, beauty and wonder of the Bluebell Woods.


Our next outing is to Worcester Cathedral on Sunday 1st June.
