Thank you Bryan. So excited about this lucky shot!
I am one of your newest followers, and this photograph is beautiful!
Hello! Thanks so much for the great comment on the picture AND for following my blog! I look forward to checking yours out 🙂
You’re welcome! I love finding new fabulous blogs & friends! You are always welcome over here! Stop by when you get the chance!
So beautiful! Wonderful detail, light and colors!
Thanks! I’d never been given a poppy before and I thought this color was incredibly beautiful. I love orange!
Incredible out of camera image Laurie. Seems like you are firing on all eight cylinders with that rig now 🙂 Well done.
Ah Joe, thanks! I was so happy with this lucky shot! Of course, I’m not showing you the many, many deleted images 🙂
Interesting composition, Laurie. I like all of the texture in the petals and the lighting is very nice!
Thanks Robyn. I’ve not been given a Poppy before! Gorgeous color and you are right about the texture. I’d not noticed
What a beautiful capture, moody and silky 🙂
Silky, yes. Perfect word.
Thanks Seonaid! The poppy really does have lovely texture. and thanks to you, too, Crystal!
Tremendous! WOW! xxAmy
Such a great color, right? So excited that I was able to catch this shot!
AS well you should be!!! You got a great shot! YAY! xx
Can see that one in poster glossy!!!!!!!
You are too kind!!
Truth!!!!! Hugs to you…………………..
In my humble opinion you and your camera have just captured the very essence of a poppy! The colour, the texture, the waxy sheen the delicacy – all there in one spot on shot!! I can actually feel those petals beneath my fingers just by looking at the photo – isn’t that amazing!!
PS It could be another flower whose name eludes me at the moment – I want to say calendula, but that is not right either – and not a poppy, but until you correct me I’ll stick with that 🙂
The woman who gave me these flowers as a gift, told me that there were indeed Poppies!
DING DING DING!! You win the prize (I wish there was a prize).
You have the best way with words … I love reading your comments, Pauline 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Stunning LB. 🙂
Thank you Suz!
Alys, do you know much about Poppies? EVer grown them?
A friend brought me these the other day and they are gorgeous!
Are they Icelandic poppies or California poppies?
They’re supposed to make great cutting flowers (long lasting). I thought they were annuals, but they are short-lived perennials. Not much difference I suppose if you have to replant each year. Once your flowers get going, you can save some seeds for next year. Fun gift!
You got that right LB. Your skills for clarity and lighting are are head turning. I mean, my gosh, look at that! Wouldn’t that make a great painting?
I used to grow poppies at the lake. Giant Orange and a light pink. They easily self sowed if you let them go to seed. I typically deadheaded quickly. That helps the energy stay with the plant for the next growing season. If you like the random, natural look, you’d love them. They’re super easy. Have a great weekend Laurie!
Good to know, Boomdee! I do like the random, natural, less than groomed look. I’ll definitely look into planting some. Thanks!
I love when a photo comes out perfect straight from the camera! This one is fabulous!
Thank you! I was pretty tickled with this one 🙂
Love it! Looks like something you would find in the framed-art section in the stores. 😀
So good to hear from you! Thanks and I hope all is well with you. I know you are busy with telling the stories in history
so beautiful, we’re speechless. the same color as the robes of Tibetan monks My Pub once shared an Easter dinner with. It’s amazing what triggers certain memories, xo LMA
Yes it is … sights, sounds, smells trigger memories … colors, too! Thanks!
Why play with beauty if it is looking as pure as this does, really love this as it is 😀
Thank you so much. I very much appreciate your comment!
Not to be a copy-cat…but yes, it is so very beautiful…simply and profoundly so…..
Thank you for this lovely comment …
