Poppy and Raindrops

A close up photograph of California Poppy petals covered with raindropsThis is an early morning macro shot of a poppy in my backyard. It had rained the previous evening and this poppy had broken away from the stem. The raindrops seemed to weigh it down even more.

Yellow Orange Glow

A close up photograph of California Poppy petalsPoppies are difficult to photograph. They are in their glory in the direct sun but that is often a harsh and flat light. They are most dramatic when back lighted but that is a challenge to expose properly. This a macro shot of poppy petals with a very shallow depth of field. With so little in focus, the yellow and orange seems to glow even more.
