Home | Galleries | Projects | Poppies

Poppies 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. Being delicate flowers, they are usually in motion, blown about by the slightest wind. Most of this collection is from my yard.
