Great photo. Well planned and executed. Many years ago, we were in CA at just the right time to see the fields of wild poppies. Nothing more beautiful.

Thanks for the visit and you're welcome,
Troy

reminds me of the californian poppies i once grew in my garden - all the neighbours kept asking me how i managed to grow orange poppies instead of red, the onces commonly found in my town!

Hi Tash! The perfect choice to show off a beautiful flower for our state. And I love the angle of the photo with the sun lighting up the edges of the petals like that. Gorgeous.
