29/365 Heavy poppies
Surprisingly, I find poppies to be a difficult flower to photograph. The main reason is that they tend to weigh heavily on their slim stems, meaning they end up falling forward and facing the ground.
So yoga-enhanced flexibility comes in handy when it comes to photographing poppies!
I love how unique the color is. Whereas I see purple and pink flowers everywhere, there are a lot fewer rich oranges.
I think this photo is another improvement on a
previously captured subject
. One thing hasn't changed in two years -- I still think of my beloved dog, Poppy, when I see these flowers!
Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/125s, f/2.8 at ISO 320 in shade at about 7:15 p.m.
