Poppies on a Tuscan hillside

Before I visited Tuscany I had this vision of poppy fields sloping away to a mist-covered valley below. Then I figured that this may be too much to ask for at the beginning of June. However, I came close (minus the mist). We were out walking in the hill town of Pomarance and happened across this valley vista with some poppies conveniently growing beside the road. I only had my compact camera with me but this gave me the opportunity to get "up close and personal". It was my wife who suggested the colourised treatment
