Poppy field about 750 metres from my home


Poppy field about 750 metres from my home

I took this because I loved the very unusual light which occurred in a lull in a storm when the sun came out for a few moments.

Thanks Elsie. It was taken using a 10x zoom lens and the chuch is perhaps 2 miles away from where I was standing but the nearest poppies were maybe 30 feet away. The long lens foreshortens the perspective.

We call this the Millais effect. Dark sky with sunlight on the fields. (The Blind Girl by Millais). It is so dramatic.

I like that a lot.
You can not help but think of paintings when you see a photo like this.
Linda pity its not your scene, I am sure you would make a good job of that
