Spring colours in Ravensbosch

The second time I visited Ravensbosch (22nd of April) the weather forecast predicted next to changing lighting conditions also rain showers. At the beginning of that morning the light was very harsh but at the end of the morning clouds did form above the forest and the conditions improved enough to shoot some standard colour woodland images.

As mentioned in my first post of Ravensbosch, the forest was starting to show its new fresh greens. The leaves on the trees were still small and sparsely. It was therefore difficult, even impossible, to create a woodland composition without a view of the sky creeping in the image. Patches of sky can be distracting in a composition of a woodland scene.

However the vibrant spring colours of the sparsely grown small leaves, the gnarly form of the trees and roots were interesting enough to try and shoot some woodland scenes.

In this post I have included some woodland scenes I certainly will revisit when the conditions are more optimal.

All images are shot with my favourite Fujifilm 33mm f1.4 lens and edited in Capture One with the Fujifilm Astia (Soft) film simulation.

I hope you like the images
