Don’t be deceived by those clear blue skies. These poppies were taking a battering in high winds in North West England in June 2011 when the picture was taken. The Corncockle which can also be seen in there are far more sturdy. They opend up a few days later. Such a shame that the poppy only blooms for such a short period of time.

Sony DSC-HX1

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.
