Poppy Field Sunrise

Kilconquhar, Fife, Scotland

 Poppies look their best when backlit, which gives their petals a luminous glow. This can however create problems with high contrast and flare from the sun. By partially hiding the sun behind the background trees I managed to keep these problems to a minimum. Normally I put great effort into keeping the horizon level, but here a decided a slight tilt enhanced the composition. Photo © copyright by Graham Chalmers.
