Bluebell Photography Walk at Emmett’s Garden, Kent

Having seen a number of friends posting photos of beautiful bluebell fields, I got it into my head that I simply HAD to go out on my own bluebell photography walk.

I, (rather indulgently) took some time out of my day yesterday to visit Emmett’s Garden in Ide Hill, a spot that is renowned for it’s breathtaking carpet of blue & green and it did not disappoint.

Myself, Nick and our good friend Mark arrived to find that due to high winds, they may be closing the property so we couldn’t hang around and had to try and get in there to grab some pictures before we got kicked out!

I love visiting places like this on weekdays, as there are no crowds and you can take some time to think about shots and compositions. It was indeed blustery but in the gaps in wind, the warm sun mixed with the heady smell of the blooms made it a trip well worth making.

As it turned out, the gardens didn’t get closed so we were able to take a little time to enjoy the rest of the grounds and it’s definitely a place I’ll be returning to (especially as I saw they were dog friendly, Poppy will love it there!). The rose garden is so pretty and we also saw a stunning collection of tulips, the colours were so eye-catching.

I took a tripod with me in the hope of catching some bluebells in the breeze, but as the breeze was more like hurricane force gusts, it wasn’t even worth trying to put it up. Maybe next time…

‘Nature Photography’ isn’t my natural preference or interest, but there’s something about bluebells that I find really captivating and I’m delighted that I now have a few pictures of my own, rather than pouring over everyone else’s!

No trip to a National Trust property is complete without a trip to the tea room so we all enjoyed a drink before heading back home!
