Poppy Impression 2

Northumbria, England

 A freshening breeze made it impossible to photograph a regular portrait image of these Poppies. Instead, I chose to create an abstract effect by handholding the camera and panning it during the exposure. The trick was to get the right amount and direction of blur to keep the flowers recognisable.
