"The heavy rain lasted for over 30 minutes and I was thankful for the large black plastic refuse bag which gave me sufficient protection as I sat huddled awaiting the sun to arrive. I had momentarily gone to sleep and was awakened by a sensation of comforting warmth on my back. Hard sunlight was being absorbed and warming me through the black plastic. I awoke from my doze suddenly and thankfully was just in time before any of the dark forbidding sky had been replaced by any blue sky that would have undermined the theatricality of the photograph. The single poppy and the yellow flowers enlivened the foreground just sufficiently."
