Photo - A California poppy

A poppy

I took 20 photos today. Each one sucked. That’s the way it is sometimes.

I shot this two weeks ago but had not had a chance to process it yet. It’s a flower I shot at the OC fair. It was a single point of beauty on an otherwise hot and muggy day.

I shot this with my Nikon D300 at f/4.5 and 1/1000. It was 2:00 in the afternoon on a hot sunny day. I was frustrated and hating life because of the throng of people sucking down beer and deep fried butter. I just wanted a moment of peace. I found it in the cactus garden with it sparse application of golden flowers.
