Having made several visits to the WW1
battlefields in Picardy and their respective
War Graves Commission cemeteries, and
to the nightly ceremony at the Menin Gate
in Ypres, I now get quite moved by the sight
(or even the thought) of poppies, and the
thought of the immense waste that the
wars of the last century inflicted on the
world, with WW1 having led inevitably to
WW2.
But I find a field of poppies is quite difficult
to photograph - it's usually 'just' a sea of
red against a sea of green. Without a
definite point of focus leading the eye, a
meaningful composition usually eludes me. So it was a pleasure to find this field, less than
a mile from where we live, suddenly covered in poppies, and with a few gorgeous cedars
to balance the composition. You could argue that the picture didn't need the
'watercolour' treatment, but I quite like it like this, as a rare excursion into 'arty' stuff.
