Church Bay, or Porth Swtan, is one of my wife Liz's and my favourite places to visit on the beautiful Isle of Anglesey.
Our normal destination is the lovely beach, backed by honey coloured cliffs and an absolute visual delight.
But on this occasion in early summer 2018 I never made it as far as the beach, being distracted by the gorgeous display of wildflowers growing on the verge by the side of the road near the Wavecrest Café (another good reason for visiting Church Bay).
What especially attacted my attention was a stand of wild poppies, resplendant in red against the clear blue sky.
Getting down low and using my polarising filter to its maximum effect really made the lovely poppies stand out.
