[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here is the California Poppy. It blooms from April to August. A very hardy annual or perennial here in California which it is native to. Eschscholzia californica is the most widespread species, extending from the Columbia River Valley in southwestern Washington south into the Baja California peninsula and sporadically on to the Cape Region, west to the Pacific Ocean, and east to western Texas. The species is highly variable, including long-lived perennials along the coast, erect perennials of inland valleys.

Hello Karen,
Yellow is a very hard color when it comes to getting the correct exposure. I have a terrible time with it in certain instances, but you seem to have gotten it right in this photo.
The California Poppy is undoubtedly a beautiful flower as evident by your beautiful image. I can only imagine what a whole field of these would look like as they carpet the costal terrian.

Hello Karen,

I love poppies and this is a lovely shot of this California Poppy. the colors are amazing with good details and sharpness. I like your POV and composition.
I feel it's a little bright with few distractions. Please find my workshop and hope you approve. TFS.


Hi Karen.
It is not a simple task to take picture of bright yellow-orange flowers in sun rays. You managed to get a nice shot which give excellent idea about the beautifulness of the plant. Composition of the shot is excellent and blurriness of the natural surroundings is very pleasant too. Thanks and best wishes.

Hi Karen,
beautiful light. Excellent point of view. Really nice colours.
Thanks for sharing,
