the poppy fields … and graves (HDR)

Poppy fields are the archetype of the Somme, the north-western part of Picardy in the North of France, a superb and unknown region. My mother was born there, I have a lot of memories associated with Amiens and its region. The area is also known for the battles of the Somme in which the British and Commonwealth armies have lost so many of their soldiers during the first world war. Poppy fields and graves is a poem dedicated to the battles which took place in Flanders, a good many miles up North across the Belgian border. But the Somme region is also known for its mind-blowing views of endless red fields, which I captured in this HDR view. Full details page with exact location coordinates click here.

  1. I love all the different colours and textures that HDR brings out in photos. Yours is looking really nice as well…I particularly love the reds of the poppys!
