Wiltshire Poppies

Wiltshire Poppies

What a wonderful experience it was to explore this wild colourful field. I spied it from a busy A road and knew I had to get closer. Foolishly I started driving the motorhome down a byway dirt track, after about a mile the road became so narrow and rutted that I couldn't go any further. But after a stressful 10 minutes of reversing the van back up the track and I set off on foot and soon found the magical field. I spent three days photographing this scene but unfortunately the light didn’t materialise, so I made do with this shot taken in the middle of the day. I like the extreme brightness and the way the overgrown track leads into the photograph, I didn't enjoy the huge number of insects snacking on me. If only I could have been blessed with a glorious sunset or sunrise. I will return to Wiltshire again next summer but this field will no doubt be filled with crops instead of beautiful wild flowers.
