Just a quick post tonight before I shoot off to chase 60 teenagers around the New Froest for the weekend in rather warm conditions (+30C at the moment..), but at least I'll get to take the camera... for those quiet moments when they are lost and trying to find themselves and I'm patiently waiting at the check point...

Anyhow - a field full of field poppies... see my previous poppy posts for details... but this is the farmers field outside by bedroom window and each morning it is like this and each afternoon they are all gone.

Taken into light to get the light patterns on the red petals... hopefully a large version as well... (edit - nope missed the size, sorry)

have a good weekend and I'll catch up on Sunday night...

thanks for looking, Emma

I hope you had a grand weekend herding teenagers! :-) This is a really lovely post. I love the patterns of light on the poppy petals. One can almost feel the warmth of the sun. What a lovely sight to wake up to. Agnes

Stunning, Emma. I love the color, I love the light, I love the panoramic composition...
P.S. I've missed a few LP posts on the panorama. I suppose they post the dimensions somewhere, but sometimes we have to do what the photo says.

what a beautiful composition in red, emma! :-)
excellent pov and crop with only the "heads"
almost glowing in the light.
well done & take care, thorsten.

Hello Emma,
I wish I have such field somewhere near, but here the cornflowers rule ;-) You can spot a poppy here and there but it's nothing like the view from your picture.
Love the strong backlited red and the panorama framing. Beautiful shot!

You had a perfect angle to get the transparencies of this beauties. I also like very much poppies, and it is Cristina┤s favourite flower, they are so delicate and collourful.
It is nice you got so many in the focus plane, it is difficult not to get some OOF in the foreground. Lovely lighting for a nice shot.
Here in Spain we have a lot, have you seen THIS Large Format I posted a long time ago.
Best regards, Felipe.

Hi Emma,
Back from Montana!! Trying to catch up on a lot of photos, but wanted to start with one of yours. I love the light in this photo, it brings out the colors perfectly and shows these great details in the flowers. Great composition and I love the crop. Of to a next photo, but will be back to visit more of yours.

Hi Emma, I love poppies too and this is a lovely shot of a really close growing group. I love the backlighting, great choice of POV on your part. I also like the composition and the DOF highlights the shape while giving an impression of the poppies going on and on into the distance. Very nicely done :)
