Poppies

Among the wildflowers on the wild coast on the outskirts of Athens, these poppies were dancing in the perpetual breeze on the cliff top.

Whenever I see a shot like this, Colin, I'm reminded that Mother Nature has always been our best gardener!
chunter: Absolutely agree, Ginnie. Thanks as always for dropping in with words of wisdom.

Remembering Anzac day?
chunter: If it coincides, I'll go with it.
I always like seeing Poppies growing, I bet the farmers don't though.
chunter: Some farmers here in Wiltshire have entire fields of them, Brian. I may have posted exmples in the past. Soon as I'vee finished replying to you, I'll go and hae a shufti.
Nicely presented. They stand out well.
chunter: One thing I discovered when I was knee hight to a grasshopper (last year, I think it was) is that red stands out from green giving an almost 3-D effect. I try to capture the combination when I see it because the result is almost guaranteed to pop.
