Glass Poppies

A glass plate was resting against some wild poppies reflecting the valley that surround Centenera in the pre-Pyrenees in Northern Spain.

    • Thanks, Stevie. Went for portrait to get some of that blue reflection in it and some disturbing elements out of it, thanks for your support, all the best, Ron.

  1. I have to comment again – I played around with a square of glass many years ago that I placed on grass. It was sunny, and there was slight condensation under the glass which made an interesting pattern in the grass, in addition to the crushed grass. The combination of the flattened botanical specimen and the light reflecting off the glass surface is a rich one, full of visual complexity . And in your photo the color really changed, too!

    • Hi Lynn, that sounds great to have the adding drops of condensation for more effect too – the flattened flower i thought was interesting too, like it looked when drying to dry leaves in books when i was young 😉
      Thanks for the interest, really enjoy your comments and support, cheers, Ron.

  2. I love the effect! I’m going to try something similar as soon as I find the glass panel I think will add interesting effect! Thanks for the idea! 😉

    • Thanks Aj, for the enthousiasm, let me know what you come up with? I was lucky to find this as it was for experimenting 😉
      All the best to you, Ron.

    • Thanks, Evi, such a shame theyre only around for a couple of weeks but makes viewing them even more precious, i guess 😉
      warm greetings, Ron.

    • Hola Barbara, bit late, but nice you like this one, didnt have much options composition-wise as i wanted to include a bit of blue sky and green valley in the reflection! Cheers, Ron.

    • Thanks very much, Katrien, couldnt resist the opportunity of combining those poppies with the green valley surroundings 😉
      Greetings, Ron.
