Poppies 1

By Tony_W
Closeup of some roadside poppies. Shot was backlit by very strong sun.

Shot taken at high shutter speed at expense of apperture to give good dof due to stiff breeze moving flower heads.

Exposure: 1/320 @ f6.3 ISO 100

Thanks Glen and all who have commented or voted. Had to park in a layby for these and walk back along the road to get them. Found them growing near a drainage ditch so I stood in it and worked at chest height. Luxury.
