The weather had been stormy all day but was forecast to improve so I headed to the field and waited.
Sure enough the clouds began to break up allowing the sun, which was slowly dropping to my right, to light the poppys.
An ND Grad was used to balance the exposure and to protect the highlights in the sky.
