Driving down the country lanes in the summer time, there’s nothing nicer than looking out into the distance and seeing a sea of beautiful red poppies fluttering in the gentle breeze. Poppies have long been one of my favourite flowers to photograph, patriotic and beautiful, delicate but yet so powerful too.
I love the vibrancy of these gorgeous flowers and the different variations too – some poppies can grow to be over four feet tall with flowers up to six inches across, so they really are such a majestic plant.
The poppies above were photographed last year in the golden hour in a field in Cudworth, South Yorkshire. I love how the light is gently illuminating the gorgeous details and couldn’t help stopping to take some photographs after I spotted them during my drive along the bypass.
It’s amazing how much beauty is around us if only we take the time to look.
