Cornflowers and Poppies

Now that summer has, by and large, passed us by, here are a few shots of cornflowers intermingled with poppies to remind us that we did in fact have a summer, albeit a brief one.  Taken at London Colney during mid July.

Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red

Last Saturday I took the opportunity to pay tribute to the poor souls who fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice during the First World War.  Being the penultimate weekend of this moving Tower of London exhibition, it was reportedly one of the busiest yet, with tens of thousands of visitors.  A visit during the afternoon was clearly out owing to the throngs of people, so a quick trip in the evening seemed like a good idea as the sea of poppies appeared to have much more impact under artificial light.  However, I did return the following morning before the crowds returned and managed to get a better overall view.
