Excellent shot Paintman! Love the perspective you've chosen. Fabulous colour of the poppies complemented by the pinks in the sky from the setting sun. Well spotted!

Cheers for the comments and votes.

Whilst taking these shots a policecar drove down the bridleway next to this field. He stopped and hopped over the fence to check me out, he thought I might have had a rifle. It was my Benbo tripod I think. Once he realised I was just photographing the poppies he went on his way. I think it goes to show that being courteous and helpful helps this kind of situation no end.

You are SO right about being courteous in that situation Alan. I regularly get checked out by gamekeepers whilst out on the moors (and you are right, it is the tripod that makes them suspicious) and I am always polite and explain what I am doing and they have always (so far) been polite and accommodating in return.
As for this image, it is beautiful, the backlit poppies are superb and the colours delightful. Smile
