one point perspective


mojave desert ca 1988

This was a spread of poppies so blinding it literally required sunglasses to look upon. A polarizer filter makes the sky go indigo while allowing the orange poppies to photograph more saturated without any glare or solar reflection. Tehachapi foothills are painted with color.
