Your reaction to yesterday's was beyond my wildest "dreams". Thanks to Pete for the EC, Ant for the GEA and ALL of you who blessed the shot with your User Awards.

Up very early this morning looking for Poppy fields. I eventually found what I was looking and then was blessed with some wonderful backlighting.

It was probably my first trip out whereby I've used the Super Wide Angle, the Macro and the 18-200 one after the other.

Thanks for your time

Mike
