Translucent Poppy

Posted by
Don Smith (California, United States) on 30 March 2008 in Landscape & Rural.

A lone golden poppy glows as it is backlit by the afternoon sun. The poppy, which is the state flower of California, was photographed on a recent outing to the Big Sur area with 3 other photographers. I used a Canon 100mm macro to isolate the flower against a bright blue sky. To see more of my images, order a copy of my book, or learn more about my upcoming workshops, please visit my website at
