Having found the perfect poppy field I was not going to give-up after a single visit. The the last couple of days I have stopped on the way to work in the morning and again on the way home in the evening. I keep trying to get that elusive perfect photo.
Note: Last year the field on the opposite side of the road was full of poppies. Timing and weather meant I missed them last year. Now a year later the other field is full of poppies and the first field is empty. I assume different crops and land management by the farmer have caused this. I guess this is why I did not notice the poppies this year – I was watching the field opposite!
