Hi

Iím based near Watford Hertfordshire & live near Uxbridge Middlesex...so Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Middlesex, Surrey, Sussex in that order would be good...
I have loose information that there is a good show near the Amex stadium Brighton could someone confirm this as itís a fair hike for a poor show...also similar info on Sandridge in Herts...again can anyone confirm this...
Thinking you in advance for your wonderfully helpful info Wink

Unfortunately nothing in the locations you have asked for, but a good show between Elmswell and Wetherden in Suffolk.

If you look in my Portfolio you'll see my latest pic from a couple of days ago (although it doesn't really show the whole field).

Lovely image Stuart...

As far as the field is concerned how dense are the poppies if I wanted to shoot people amongst them?

This gives a pretty good idea. The only problem with it being Suffolk is that it is a fairly flat field with the outskirts of the village nearby. There was a photographer there taking pics of a family while I was there and she was using a stepladder to get some elevation.

I've been given some info today on a few near Royston by my delivery guy who drives across from Norfolk to me in Watford who saw them today & said they were great so I'll maybe try them & if no good pop over to Elmswell...
