The poppy symbolizes for me the first real flower of summer! Regeneration, new life, the warm season after the cold, hope,… Captured on the high plateau near Santiago del Teide just a few months after the ravaging fires which destroyed huge areas of landscape in 2007 – mostly started by a fire raiser! An amazing contrast of new life and burnt death.
