Hidden Primrose

Bovey Woods, Dartmoor, UK

Spring is such a great time to be out with the camera, new life and colour seems to appear from nothing. Due the extended winter this year we experienced most of the flora of Dartmoor has been delayed or in the case of the primroses a bumper year due to the amount of frost we've had. This was a tricky image to capture, being within only 30cm of the Primroses I used focus stacking to capture everything in the scene with perfect sharpness, although I have used this technique in the past it requires near perfect conditions, no wind or sunlight so each frame remains the same. The image was a combination of 9 images altogether blended together and corrected in Photoshop.
