These gorgeous orange and yellow sunset poppies are a variety called the Icelandic Poppy, praised for their thin tissue like petals. Each bloom and its stem seems to have a personality of its own. Some are quirky and others are graceful, but they are always beautiful.
Sunset Orange and Yellow Icelandic Poppies is part of my Modern Floral Collection which I began shooting in the Spring of 2017. This modern minimalist collection was inspired by the botanical illustrations of the 19th century and the flower portraits of photography icon Robert Maplethorpe.
