California Poppies abound in this area of Central California. I captured this with a Fuji XT3, 80mm lens at f4 1/500 sec. It was a bit breezy so had to shoot many times to get it as quiet as possible With a fast shutter speed…
This has quite a lovely soft feel to it Megg. Poppies are challenging for me to capture, seems they are so delicate any amount of wind will blow them around. I love the color contrast and the soft out of focus background. Nicely done.
Gorgeous image. Love the softness and the many shoots were well worth it. The focus spot is bang on. Not easy with wind.
Thanks for sharing,
A favorite subject of mine - your shot has lovely light, color and a simple composition that really showcases the poppie’s beauty.
Thanks so much for your positive comments. Poppies are ALWAYS a challenge. They refuse to sit still for very long. I just sit and wait…and wait…and wait.
I appreciate your comments. Poppies are one of my favorites.
