I was lucky to find this large poppy field (Common Poppies, Papaver rhoeas) with red poppies on a trip for a travel guide in Southern Italy in spring.
I selected spring to travel to Southern Italy to avoid the super hard summer light as well as the heat. It was the right timing as I was able to find a few large poppy fields, especially in the Gargano region in Apulia.
This is one of my favorite poppy field pictures, simply because of the large single tree in the background. The tree gives this panorama photo a lot of depth as well as a strong focus point.
I photographed this panoramic Italian landscape scene in Apulia with my Fuji 617 in the format 6x7cm on Fuji Velvia film, later scanned with the Hasselld (Imacon) X5 scanner.
