May is poppy time in Tuscany: everywhere you go in the countryside there are fields of them looking fabulous. 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. It’s very similar to Poppies 2; I just got a bit closer. I can’t decide which I prefer.
