Van Dusen's Blue Poppy 1 - Vancouver, British Columbia

This is a photo of a Himalayan poppy. Each spring I visit Van Dusen Gardens to photograph its beautiful blue poppies. They are located in a secluded part of the extensive gardens, and I usually have them all to myself. :) I used a very fast shutter speed to create the dark contrast. The photo was taken in June 2012, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.
