Spring in Portland

One of the great "features" of Portland are curbside flower gardens. Always on the lookout for an interesting color combination, I spotted these beautiful poppies while riding my bike. Sometimes direct sunlight can work if it's morning light that is not too harsh.

The wind was blowing so I needed a reasonably fast shutter speed with a medium aperture (50mm lens, 1/160 sec, f/6.3).
