Now I took those images on June 26th and today being back in Tbilisi I tried to locate this place on map, unfortunately I couldn't find an easy task to do this (that's why I love cameras with built in GPS), but after some 30 minutes of using Google Street view I finally found the same bus stop I captured here and here you go - this place is located on my travel map as well.
Poppy field near Viesāti
Lovely sunset, lovely field of poppies. Could spend hours here for taking better landscape photography and most probably will repeat photography here.
Turn to Viesāti
This poppy field is located near P104 road connecting Jaunpils to Tukums.

The bottom line
Sometimes taking some bypass road can take you to amazing places you didn't know before.
