In Between the Downpours by Alice Gosling
Clear

I managed half an hour in between very heavy, stormy downpours to get this image of a gloriously full poppy field near Chartham, Kent, UK

Despite the threatening rain clouds I still needed to bracket 3 shots to capture all the detail in the sky and the poppy field.

    You’ve found another then Allent if shot in today’s conditions – we had a double rainbow down the road from here at about 6 o’clock this evening. Beautiful light on the poppies and just love that sky, full of texture and body those clouds.

  • Yes Stuart, another one, least I think it is. I was going to head to the one you told me about at the bottom of Stone Street opp the pub but hubby told me about this one, very close by yours. I was going to do the two, until I got soaked to the skin with these shots!!

    My keyboard stuck, the beginning shoukld read
    “You’ve found another then Alice, Excellent if shot…..” It seems to have gone on strike!

  • :D. It was indeed shot today, about 5:15 ish. From Canterbury end of Stone Street, turn right directly after Granville Pub into Chartham Downs Road and follow it to the crossroads. The field is on the R.H. side and is absolutely full of poppies. There is a small pull-in right next to the end of the field.

  • So that’s another one for the list then and close by makes it all the more appealing. It was a bit wet!! I will defo visit it again on a drier day, its a superb field full

    What a terrific shot Alice! That cloud-filled sky is superb.. just shows you can’t beat those breaks in stormy weather to get the best light. A fave for me.

  • Thanks Mike. I often delay going out if the weather is unpredicatable but so glad I made it that day.
