Spitalfields Poppies, Old Shoreditch Station

It took me several early morning trips to this empty space in front of the closed former Shoreditch station, where a field of poppies was blooming in May 2015. I wanted to highlight the bees hunting for pollen in the poppy and leave a bautiful background blur - I used a special ultra wide angle lens with a very shallow aperture and finally I got the bee in the poppy at just the right time. A labour of love which looks fantastic as 30x20 print.
