The World Of Poppies
Photo By Bruce Wendler

  • Title: The World Of Poppies
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: High Desert
  • Nearest Town: Lancaster
  • Brief Directions: Drive along the 14 to Antelope Valley and head West to the poppy preserve. If they are blooming, just follow the crowds.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: Not far from the Antelope Valley Poppy Preserve are large fields of wildflowers that carpet the floor. A late snow storm that left snow on the Tehachapi Mountains made for a perfect background. The challenge was the wind. Taking 12 shots at different focus points were used to help fill in the blurs and provide a sharp background. I found that it exciting to develop the shot as detail was brought out within the poppies showing me the diversity within the clusters. I imagine that must have been the feeling of seeing images develop in the dark room and picking up detail as they became sharp. Something the digital age doesn't appreciate.
