My Photographer's Eye

Vignette #11 A Riot of Poppies
The poppies didn't wait for the first day of spring to come to life. By the time the equinox arrived, they were rioting and rollicking and spilling from their container. Almost past their prime, my photographer's eye recognized their beauty in the urban landscape and stopped to document it.

Poppies are one of my favourite flowers - love that shot of colour against the layered grey urban background.

Wow, I love the combination of nature and urban. The flowers are trying to poke their heads out here but it is really far too cold!

Super photo and I love how you have angled it to get the street behind

Beautiful photo of the CA poppies! We had an unusual visitor to our yard the other day. At first we thought it was a baby hummingbird and then realized it was not! After searching I finally pinned it down to a hummingbird moth or clearwing moth. Rare and especially where I live!

Beautiful color combination - and who could resist those wonderful California poppies?

Julia said...

Gorgeous! - I never knew californian poppies were orange! I'm so used to the European red ones :)

Aren't these lovely! In our monochrome world here they have brought a touch of sunshine into my day. And the blue is a great contrast. Nicely spotted!

Absolutely fabulous, I love the californian poppy, so cheerful and they look wonderful in the blue pot.

Elizabeth said...

I've never been able to grow poppies. At their prime, your poppies must have been beautiful.
