Looks like there was some good 'underlight' (if there is such a word) - the grain and the poppies are beautifully bright in contrast to that threatening sky. Carol

Great sky and I love the few poppies among the wheat (or barley or whatever is it!). So much more effective than poppies in rape fields, which is mostly what I've found.
