Summer has gone now, so I thought today I would post a reminder of those warmer days, with another shot of a scarlet carpet of poppies blooming on the South Downs above the coastal town of Shoreham-by-sea in West Sussex, England.
Regrettably I have found it necessary to add a discrete watermark to my images posted on TE as some have been hi-jacked and are now being used commercially on other websites, without my permission.
I realise it is impossible to stop people sharing images once posted on the internet and I have no real issue with that, it is flattering to know that they like them that much………but to make money from them is another matter and infringes copyright.
My anti-virus software dislikes the forums on TE! So please do not think I am rude if I do not answer any comments or questions raised…………

c'est une magnifique photo, où la nature est sublimée par la beauté des fleurs et la couleur vive, contrastant avec le ciel.

bel soggetto, bella ripresa e soprattutto tanto colore e nitidezza.
Una foto primaverile che ben ci sta in questo momento di maltempo (soprattutto in Italia e a Roma in particolare).
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Outstanding photo of beautiful meadow with red poppies. You have chosen superb low POV creating nice view over the flowers. The deep DOF is also very good and the contrast against blue sky superb. Well done.

I like this succinct composition Brian. Nothing but poppies and a clear blue sky. The summer sunshine and warmth oozes from this. Have a fine Sunday. Rosemary

Hi Brian,spectacular memory of the start of summer,great way to show us this neverending poppies filed,very high contrast and bright colors for the best optical effect,i like it! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Summer has gone?? Someone forgot to tell Mother Nature then, it's still plenty warm here in Az! :) This would be the the virtual epitome of RGB, you've stripped it down to those three colors succinctly and with precision. This is a wonderfully simple and attractive arrangement that speaks to the subtle beauty of the season. I'm guessing you must have spent some quality time here then trying to capture the last remaining bits of summer before everything starts to change, yeah? :) Beauty composition to enhance the effectiveness of these colors, it all flows quite smoothly. Hope you're having a nice weekend. Take it easy.
Friendly wishes from the red, white and blue,

What a beautiful subject, shot so expertly and magnificently. I love the Rule of Thirds framing, the vivid colours, the warm light and the beautiful textures created by the infinite number of poppies. A wonderful shot indeed.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely evening

Un champ de coquelicots comme ça est devenu un spectacle rare dans nos régions! Un cadrage vertical original pour cette photo très colorée.

I like the solitary red poppy poking up into the blue sky top right. Makes the shot for me. Good sharpness and its turned cold here in Turkey too. 12c down from 23 just a few days back. The warm cold color contrast is excellent. Well framed and composed with good sharpness throughout. Have a nice Sunday!

Great image, but how long before moderators took it away ?
THe contrast is stunning and the colors amazing
Very well done
macjake (67846) 2013-10-07 20:11
nice shot indeed!
anytime you can get colors like vibrant reds and blues together you know its going to pop and sizzle.
We actually had a nice sunny day here today, but i know that won't last long as Autumn is quickly approaching.
nothing but poppies and sky!
