In July, I shared some images of a poppy field I had found near the village of Send. I couldn’t resist sharing a few more. It was really special being there, among all the flowers. Three whole fields were covered in poppies. The first shot was taken in the morning, but I popped down again in the evening for some better light.

As the sun set, the poppies began to close, but the light was more interesting.

Everything changes in evening light
In low light like this, a tripod was essential. Needless to say, the camera was not set up for a moving deer, so when one bounded across the field I was working in, all I could do was react and take the shot with the wrong settings. At least I have something vaguely deer-like to jog my memory; I have a picture in there that needs no settings.
Well, the promised snow didn’t arrive. Instead, sleet and yet more rain. So I consoled myself with editing some more images from our wonderful trips in August and October to the Channel Island of Jersey.
