Photographer's Note

England has these amazing fields of flowers starting in April/May with the wonderful Bluebells in historical woods, to wonderful fields of wild flowers,the light blue fields of flax to the yellow crops of Canola fields and now the stunning RED carpets of Wild Poppies.Sadly the fields are deminishing in size (except those of the crops)and this is apparently having serious effect on insect and bird life. There is a BIG drive for the natural fields to be re-established and re balance the natural life cycle..

These Red Poppy fields together with the white fields in the bg are planted fields on the Getty estate in Stockenchurch. .. I loved it when the sun comes out and the wind blows they look like a live glowing carpet... There was a sharp gusty wind yesterday, thus enhancing the "fullness" of the RED carpet..


PS I have a question for TE members and I guess targeted mainly for the moderators?

Why when posting a field of flowers they are acceptable to the moderators, yet take ONE flower from that field it becomes unacceptable to the moderators? I look forward to an answer and hopefully it does not say - Well its part of the T&C!)
