Using A DSLR

Ercall Wood, Shropshire

We love our woodland walks, the adventures, the games we play and most of all we love seeing how woodlands change over the seasons. We are lucky to have various woodlands pretty much on our doorstep so we are never short of adventures.

Early in April we headed over to Ercall Woods, located at the bottom of the Wrekin in Telford. I’d heard rumours a while ago of there being a Bluebell field there and I wanted to have a nosey to see if I could locate it to return at a later date to photograph the kids there in a sea of blue.

Obviously I had to take various other photos on our outing.


I love how the atmosphere can change so easily by changing a photo from colour to B&W


Lewis found a tent made of wood complete with a camp fire.

Part of the woodland was covered in quite a thick moss


The beginnings of a new season of Bluebells


We found a perfect perch of Lewis to sit surrounded by Bluebells, we hope to go back in a week or so to see the difference and capture more photos.

    What a lovely outdoor place to explore so much nature and what a natural playground

      You took the words right out of my mouth – We much rather play in a natural muddy playground rather than a built playground! x
