Summerset by Meowgli Summerset by Meowgli
Look familiar? This was actually the same field as the shot below, but a day earlier, at a slightly different time, and with a different camera. The main reason for return for 'Solstice Glow' was that I arrived at the field just too late on this occasion (on the 20th) to catch the poppies with that same warm backlit glow of the other, or the sun poking through just above the horizon. But also the fact that a shot of the summer solstice sunset is a nice thing to have.

I actually prefer the composition of the flowers here and the sunset itself was the prettier of the two from what I can remember, shame I couldn't have gotten there just 10 minutes earlier but I only stumbled on this field right at the end of a few hours of scouting :)

Photo taken in Oxfordshire, England.

This is wonderful Adam. The poppy fields around me did really badly this year due to very dry weather mid summer so my shots failed this time.

ah bummer, it's surprising how little time they bloom for actually, I went back less than a week later and the field was practically bare!

I very much argee with you that the composition of Summerset is the one to choose. The poppies form a pleasing blanket which draws your eyes to the setting sun and hills. Maybe next year the poppies and the sun will greet you with perfection. Looking foreward to seeing that.

Love this one too, the flowers may not have the warm light of the sunset to make them glow but they are well composed and stretch like a carpet and the sky is awesome!
