Iceland Poppy

My preferred method of taking flower photos has become to shoot them from below with the sky as the backdrop. I love how the sunlight filters through the flowers.

Many of these I must shoot with the camera on the ground so I am shooting blind. This makes aligning the image somewhat of a hit or miss game. There are quite a few throwaway shots. Sometimes when using a super wide angle lens, I catch my head on the periphery of the photo.
