  2. It looks beautiful, can’t believe they have so many, it’s literally like a sea isn’t it?

    • Thanks very much. It really is like a sea, it’s an incredible sight. They were still hard at work adding to them.

  5. Love this shot with the leaves framing the photo and Tower Bridge in the background. It’s quite sobering to see just how many poppies there are around the Tower of London.

    • Thanks very much. It’s incredible just how many poppies there are – it’s hard to get your head round the fact that each one represents someone who died.
