Jim Russell sent us this eye popping photo of the pretty poppy fields near Whitwell.

The summer sunshine really brought the flowers to life in recent weeks, attracting the attention of everyone who went past.

And set against the bright blue sky they make a colourful contrast in Jim’s photo.

Across the county border in Anston similar scenes have ben enjoyed with poppies popping up amid a field of bright yellow rape seed.
