Morning Herman, no rain here but blowing gales out, will have to hold onto my camera in Hout Bay. I was going to upload a poppy today so had to look for another image...A great shot....well done

A really effective shot, Herman.
Lovely picture.

An unusual triple poppy appeared in our garden, self seeded.
The pods (about 30) have dried out now and I've collected the seeds.
About a million I would think!
Guess whose village is going to be the poppy capital of the UK next year!
I will walk about like Johnny Appleseed but scattering poppies.

A delightful image, Herman. Weather not much better here, either, wicked winds, very overcast and cold Sad Carol

Very eye catching image Herman.

I think you only just qualify for Saturday shadow but it doesn't alter the fact that this is a great image.

Definitely qualifies for Saturday with that shadow Grin

But of course I'm drawn mainly to that amazing RED. Totally what I'd 'chilli red' the one in your UA!

Very well shot, this, Herman Smile

Stunning red going on there Herman, it is my experience and understanding, that reds are one of the hardest colours to photograph, well, you make it look so easy and it is a delight to see, especially with such a great background.

Lanzarotti was wonderful and when I went to the Africa side of the Island I waved to you, but I didn't see you wave back Sad

A brilliant red poppy--- what a find color-- (wish I had one like it)
Beautiful poppies, Herman. Ready to collect the seeds? Use them in bread making.

A rainy and cool morning here in Upstate New York where I am doing a craft show.
