I love to travel far away from home but I’m also a bit of a backyard tourist and love discovering what’s on my doorstep.  Last month I was driving home from work and spotted a distant flash of crimson across the South Downs at the back of Brighton.   I took a detour to get a closer look and was greeted by a red carpet of poppies enveloping the hills.  I spent an hour amidst the vibrant flowers clicking away with my camera.  A few days later I returned and experimented with tilts and angles.  Perfect for Ailsa’s Travel Theme ‘Tilted’.  I’ve included a couple more un-tilted shots just because I like them – I hope you do too…
