20120702 - Sunspot

Oh dear - a bit late for work this morning - I'd cycled just under three miles when I realised I'd forgotton my wallet with my pass in it...
So, it was back home to collect it, then on the second trip, the sun just popped out as I got to the poppies - and as I was already late anyway... ;o)

Canon EOS 5D ,Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
1/640s f/3.2 at 153.0mm iso100 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Lovely colors and glow. Love the selective focus and depth of field. It is like a dream. V.

Dreamy. Super depth of field.

I love this close up fringe of clarity against the background blur.

Superb - you should be late more often - perhaps they'll give you a "late pass" ;)
Martin Lamoon02-Jul-2012 21:38
Perfect with the 'hint of poppies in the fields. V

Well worth stopping for, and if your late, you may as well be later.
Bill Miller02-Jul-2012 20:13
Well, this picture was worth the round trip!

Wonderful combination of colours. I like very much the difference between the fresh and warm golden field at the front and the cold grayscale at the back side. V
John Reynolds02-Jul-2012 19:48
Great landscape with that shallow DOF. V.

Fab picture, well worth being late for! You've got see-through poppies and I see you still have summer with you. Ours was yesterday afternoon :0)
