Poppy Field – 9/07/2016
Last year I completed 2 camera courses, learning how to control my camera in full Manual, since then I have never looked back. I love the control, flexibility and also knowing what makes a camera click. Since the course I am a member of a local photographers group on Facebook, its great getting insight to what people like photographing, sharing hints and tips and looking at local locations to me. So a fortnight ago when a member shared a photo of a poppy field they had come across I just KNEW I had to visit, lucky for me too that it was only 10 minutes away from my house. Sadly a fractured ankle put a stop to my visit for a while but this week I have found myself with some mobility and being able to drive again. So on Wednesday evening (after Slimming World), armed with my camera I headed out in search and what I found was absolutely amazing. I arrived at 9.20pm which was a little too late as the sun was setting and there were too many clouds so I had to bump up my ISO a little too much for my liking. I do intend to revisit again when the weather is a little nicer and we have some blue stuff in the sky.
