May is poppy time in Tuscany: everywhere you go in the countryside there are fields of them. For these, I didn’t have to go far – just over the wall of our terrace into the field below the house. This shot is straight from the camera, taken this morning, 22 May 2009 looking into the morning sun.

Best viewed large.

Living for partly in Italy, partly in Phuket and partly in other locations around the world – Hong Kong & Kenya when I can – I spend a lot of time photographing anything and everything. I particularly enjoy the challenge of capturing shots of wildlife large and small – from elephants to insects. A wider selection of my work can be seen on my website at
