Flowers: Rememberance


Poppies have been associated with rememberance since Flanders in the first world war.

This image is manipulated using layers and multiplication of blurred images to provide this soft impressionist aura.

Not sure what I will begin with tomorrow yet - have a great weekend!

Wow. I was in Germany for a few days and I see that I missed quite a lot of interesting shots here. Indeed quite a radical turn around from your abstract work.
Althrough all have a very interesting composition I particularly like today's shot.
Eery... nice work !

Ahhhh I can imagine myself laying down in the sea blanket of poppies and sing along with wizard of oz buddies.."Oh what a happy day"... despite the violence world that we are living in reality. My heart goes to people of England and it pain me to see people suffering, especially children. I pray that whoever did bad things, will forgive thmeselves and in time, they will turn themselves in if they really want to do right things. I'm glad to hear that your son is safe. Thank you for this wonderful shot and it was good treat for me after a long stressful day! Take care, my friend!

Ah, that brings back some memories. I was the Lion on our theatre's production of Wizard of Oz, and we used dancers as poppies. Wonderful image.

At first glance, I thought of Claude Monet.

Wow, Ian, this is amazing... I so love how you did this--they look like ghosts, especially with the misty pale green throughout the field... Another of my favorites of yours--just beautiful!

I actually prefer this shot to yesterday. It has a dreamy, watercolor feel to it. Excellent work on the post processing. How different is this from the original?

From a gorgeous carpet of bluebells to a field of poppies, wonderful stuff, Ian. I could just run through this field, like a kid.
