Summer poppies

Janey

By Janey


Summer poppies

These are shirley poppies
from seeds which were
scattered around the garden.

Beautiful picture. It too has the look of a painting. Is there something you do that creates this?

No, but I do take some photos like this one, early morning and into the sun. If you can get yourself and camera in the shade but take the flowers with the light behind them it can turn out quite good, and outline the plants, and make the petals more vivid, especially on delicate thin flowers. See what you think.
