After a fantastic wedding day, honeymoon and then a manic week at school with another Ofsted inspection and GCSE Coursework deadline, I have decided to get back on the flickr trail with an image that I composed last weekend. Waking up at 5.00am, I slipped out of the house, got in my car, and sped west along the A50 to one of my poppy hotspots at Ingleby. This is an area that almost guarantees poppies every year - though they never re-appear in the same fields two years running. The sun was already gaining quite a bit of strength and burning the mist in the Trent Valley beyond this field. The sun's brightness was such that I decided to half position it behind the tree branches to diffuse the light, yet also take advantage of the backlighting on the poppy heads. A 0.9 hard ND grad held in the colour of the sky and helped to enhance the silhouette of the trees.
