Whilst driving, a couple of villages away from my home, my vision was distracted by this sea of red visible through gaps in a hedge. I knew they were poppies but I had not seen such an abundance so close to home before. It is one of those sights that you cannot take your eye off, so I knew I would return with camera in hand. But standing in front of this ocean I wondered where to begin, the vibrancy of the colours gave the whole scene a psychedelic feel, blending in as one, and every now and again a thin line of yellow flowers breaking through. The wind was not still enough to really work with the poppies but I tried my best and left in awe.
