Memories of Spring in ‘Allium Valley’

After completing a large commercial photo/video project, I recently had a little spare time to ‘kick-back’ and revisit some images that I took in my local area way back in 2010. Actually, it was my Father who suggested the general location for this shoot to me originally. On his advice, I was lucky to get there in the brief ‘window of opportunity’ when Allium ursinum (Wild Garlic) literally carpets the floor of this ‘secret valley’ by the beautiful River Weaver, near Frodsham. At the time of writing, I believe the scene is unfolding once again this Spring and I’d love to get back there to see if the display is as impressive (both in terms of sight and smell!) this year.
