Poppy Heaven   Kilconquhar, Fife, Scotland

This glorious field of poppies is one of the finest I have ever come across and definitely the best I've ever seen in  Scotland.  These fallow flowering fields are so rare these days, chiefly because of Britains monocrop farming policy which completely overwhelms natural growth.  Thankfully nature sometimes fights back with vigour and when it does the results are stunning.  I shot this below a level white sky for maximum shadowless detail, allowing the depth of field to blur the near and distant poppies out of focus so that only a few blooms are truly sharp.
