Have a great weekend.

Many thanks to my wife for spotting this beautiful field of poppies whilst en route to Canterbury.

Having told me about their location we decided to investigate further, so this past Sunday we took a trip together so I could have a go at getting some photos. The weather for most of the day had been a bit dull and overcast but luckily the sun came out shortly before we arrived.

Having spent some time getting shots with both my short and long zooms I decided to attach my Lensbaby Muse as I haven’t used that in quite some time. I find it’s ideal for more abstract floral shots such as this and in this instance helps to give a more bright and airy feel. I hope you like it too.

Created using Lensbaby Muse loaded with the double glass optic and f4 aperture disc. Processed in Lightroom 5.3.
