Golden sunlight captured in a flower Reggie / Friday, 16 October 2009 Aren’t these glorious? Blissful sigh… P.S. I have just found out that these are Californian Poppies (Eschscholzia californica). Share this:EmailFacebookTwitterLinkedInLike this:Like Loading...

They are beautiful indeed.
In that last photo it looks like the flowers are looking up to the sky. The orange of the petals and the blue of the sky look so fresh together.
It took me about 30 shots, where I just held the camera underneath the flowers, to get just a handful that looked good. I also like the last one best. It really captured the sunshine-yellow glow of the flower.
Really lovely pics.
Hey Robynn! Long time, no see! How is little Claudia? I’m gonna pop on over to yer blog asap.
I am jealous as the cold North winds have been blowing snow here all week, and it will be months before we see color again. It is a good thing that I can look at wonderful blogs from around the world to fill some of the void.
Hi slamdunk, you’re very welcome. Glad to be able to oblige. I’ll keep my eyes open for some more colours in the world outside to post on my blog.
Especially love that last photo. It looks so magical with the yellow-orange and blue sky. How you can almost see through the flower into the heavens.
Well said, Kathy, that’s exactly why I love that photo so much too. 🙂
Such a nice flower in a beautiful color. Yellow is so difficult to catch for my camera, especially this warm yellow tone. The last photo is very interesting, with the shadows making more tones.
Thank you for telling me about the name of this flower.
Hello Birgitte – the reason I’m pretty sure this is the kind of flower you photographed too, is because I have previously taken some pics of the inside of these flowers here, and it looks just like it. I just didn’t know if these grow anywhere else.
