Yesterday I took a day off work to go to Longwood Gardens to shoot the Blue Poppies with a couple of friends. Having heard that this year’s display was the best in recent memory I was not disappointed. Also known as the Himalayan Blue Poppy, it is my understanding they can be difficult to grow and perhaps the reason why the displays at Longwood vary from year to year. One of my other challenges is to try and capture something I find compelling and yet different from what I have shot in the past. Yesterday was a good day!
