well, for me anyway! Just a bit of minor personal trumpet blowing, I’ve just had my first image reach a ‘grand’ total of 1000 views on Flickr and its still climbing. Here is a link to the image in my Flickr Photostream http://flic.kr/p/8cSwzq
It’s an image that was taken on an inpromptu outing to a local spot with fellow photographer Carl Mickleburgh. I’d spotted this field while out scouting the local area and just had to return that very same evening. It was a fantastic field of poppies so dense it was a sea of red and it was nice to have such a location on my doorstep for a change. To top it off we were blessed with a stunning evening sky too.
It was uploaded to Flickr that same evening and soon afterwards made it into Flickr Explore and since its upload it has steadily increased in views and i was over the moon to see it reach 1000 views a few days ago.
I’m hoping to pay the very same location a repeat visit this summer in the hope that that this sea or red returns. I’ve sold the image below quite a few times and even had enquiries about turning it into a gift card. I’m hoping i can add a few more to my poppy collection so it will make a nice card set.
