This image was taken in the late afternoon of July 8th, 2017 just behind the lower sand dunes on the western part of the peninsula Walcheren, Zeeland, The Netherlands.

The contrast of the different colored layers consisting of the poppy field, a hay field, the lower sand dunes and a blue sky were appealing to me, and worthwhile to be captured.

There's dunes in there? Must be under that green growth, eh? Yes, I do like the layers of color and the opportunity to see the patches of poppies in bright sun and also shadow, and in particular how they range in size from the foreground (where they are individual flowers) to the background (where they are literally a tight mass of polka dots). The way the tree shadows rise and fall in the field and the variety and position of the colors also reminds me of something unexpected. I've worked, off and on, for over 30 years, with paleontological specimens and their attendant exhibits, and this patterning is something many paleo artists use to depict the sides and skin of dinosaurs. Neato!

Love the colour layers!...they add an eye catching attraction!...the contrasts of the dark foreground leading away to the brightness in the distance makes this a terrific composition!

Yikes, look at the colors. Fabulous shot. I think you must walk as much as I do because these places are generally not downtown. Well worth the walk. Great use of light and dark contrast, but he colors make this shot.


P.S. Perfect sky as well.

A S&F for me Mr. C. - this could be used in a photography class to instruct on lighting and layers!
