While visiting the Oregon Garden we were fortunate to take advantage of a Travel Zoo deal and stay at the Resort there. That gave me easy access to the Garden. I would get up at 4:45 and head out to shoot photos like these of the poppies before the bright sunlight would make it impossible to capture all the detail and texture of the flowers.
The early morning dew seemed to accentuate the delicate nature of this poppy. This photo was taken with my Canon 5D II, a Canon 70-200 2.8 IS lens with a B&W polarizer.
