We found a Poppy field the other day – we managed to get a little lost and we stopped for a look at the map and escaped the confines of the car to profit a little from the scenery and of course the Poppies….unfortunately most of them had finished flowering but I still found that the Poppy seed heads and the last remaining Poppies looked just as pretty.

We live in the West of France in the Poitou Charentes region, I love where we live and take a lot of inspiration for photography from the countryside and wonderful regions around us.

I have not had any formal training and just feel comfortable behind the lens, enjoying the feeling of liberty and fun that is to be had with a camera.

I also have a FaceBook Page

    What an interesting composition, the background seems to fly up around the central blossom, which might be lost in full color,a good SC use. As reflector writes, this gives an abstract sensibility to the image, supporting the beautiful red shape of unfolded poppy, and a sense of time itself unfolding.

  • Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment – it is truly appreciated :)
