Last weekend I was given a bunch of Iceland Poppies, mostly still furled inside their hairy sepals which fall as the crumpled papery petals push the flower open. Today I took those that remained and took some pictures, playing also with my son’s professional lights which I have borrowed for a while. These were taken with my 100mm macro lens, using a tripod, and mostly lit from behind or underneath. I hope you enjoy them.
I think my favourite shot is the last one, the poppy was cream, so I have changed it to a black and white image.
