2016—The Poppy Vortex

While we were in Bear Valley photographing fields of poppies and other wildflowers, Bruce showed me a shot he captured of the poppy-covered hillside in front of us.  He intentionally  moved the camera 90° to get an abstract circular pattern.  I loved the look and tried it  myself.   It took a few tries to get the proper exposure  and to get a complete circle but when I did, I loved what I got.  Here are two versions of what I call the “Poppy Vortex.”
