Up Close and Personal...

Up Close and Personal...

Lancaster, California

Had I known how illusive the poppy can be; how late they open, how early they close, how sensitive they are to
the wind, I would have lingered longer in this pretty spot nestled in the mountains outside Lancaster. If you had
traveled this road that day, you might have found me scrambling up an embankment, or precariously perched atop one,
or (don't tell anyone) sneaking in through a wide spot in a barbed wire fence. Oh my, what we won't do for the shot!

other sizes: small medium original

Beautiful colour, comp and selective focus. Voted
I've crawled under and climbed over a few fences "to get the shot" myself over the years. Sometimes you do what you gotta do, lol.
