Lancaster, California Some scenes just cry out for the up-close-and-personal approach. I got down low to shoot these brilliant red poppies with the blue sky as contrast. And the colors really pop! With the two flowers in the foreground out of focus, they help frame the focal point of the photograph: the poppy in center frame with its crown of blue. Sometimes the greatest impact is derived from zeroing in on the details of things that make up the big picture. This was one of those times when the details really told the story for me.
