Good evening.

Yes, poppies!

These caught my attention this morning on my way to Hardwick Hall, growing amongst a crop of oilseed rape.

It's just my turn, is all. More to follow, I'm afraid.

Thanks for taking a look, all comments much appreciated.

To me this beats all my recent uplaods for the back lighting and the dreamy effect the out of focus plants in the foreground give it. Quality photography

I love the light through the translucent heads and the swirly out-of-focusness of the back and foreground - and the composition is lovely. Just as well you took your camera with you! Carol (I wonder what they are all looking at?)

Love the delicacy of this image. It matches so well with poppies as they really are, rather than the rather solid look sometimes achieved with the camera.
