Phew. Finally processed all recent #poppy photographs. Here's a closer look into the Red Sea.
CW: insect (cute bumblebee behind) in last image.
#Poppies in #stormy #weather. That was worth getting soaked through to the bone. Taken almost three weeks ago, but processing took a while (all are #panorama shots stitched together from up to 13 images)#photography #landscapephotography

@leah Thanks. I have a definite favourite. That sea of red. So glad that local farmer started to sell Randstreifenblühmischungen two years ago which results in several of his fields looking like that.
@leah I don't know. Probably just selling them to bis suppliers who are handling distribution. The farmer in question is a very nice person (I'm allowed to go into the fields and shoot on his grounds), but he's quite traditional. That "newfangled eco stuff" is more of a business opportunity than depply personal conviction.
@MalteHollmann Yeah, just looked it up. Also had to check the ethymology of "Schabracke", because so far I only new that as a curse word. And whoa, that is a mean one.
@eyeling Haven't quite gotten it yet! I knew it as a curseword too but so far I couldn't find an explanation how a word for "Satteldecke" became an abusive word!
@Orthy Rawtherapee + CS5 . Both are vertical panoramas of 5-6 images stitched together. There are of course colour enhancements, but I didn't replace the sky or any such nonsense.
@eyeling I also love what a difference a few hours can make. Visiting poppy fields atr noon versus visiting poppy fields at like 6/7pm is a hugeee difference.
@eyeling I particularly like how the clouds come forward on this shot. And damn, SO many poppies! Beautiful scene.
@eyeling absolutely gorgeous! I'm in California and our state flower is the poppy, but ours are bright orange, occasionally yellow.
@eyeling yeah ours are practically neon they're so bright! I love in the high desert but we can have an incredibly intense wildflower bloom in spring that is just amazing! All the orange in the attached photo is poppies. 😀

@eyeling yeah. I've lived here for more than 30 years and I'm still blown away by the flowers in Spring!
@futureisfoss Indeed a great place for kids. Many open fields and forests around. Great for walking and biking.
Very conservative, though. And few culture things to do.
