Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

This diptych was created from a couple of photos I captured one summer evening. We drove past this little church and in the back alley there was this field of poppies. The sun chose that moment to break through the clouds. I begged my husband to take me home so I could get my camera and capture the moment.

I did some post production work in PS to give it a surreal feel to accentuate how I felt when I saw such beauty.

    Dreamy and beautiful. I love the way the light catches each hair on the poppy’s stem and brings out the delicate texture of the petals. Lovely manip and images.

  • Thank you :) What excellent feedback.
