I wanted to take a picture of some lavender, so researched some lavender farms, but I had a bit of a panic about this shot, as having telephoned before we went, it turned out they had started the lavender harvest! so we were on borrowed time. Thankfully the weather was good to us and the other 8 photographers who were all stood in the fields looking at this amazing sight and smelling it!! the scent was incredible!
This is a wonderful place to visit, the owners are very accomodating and incredibly friendly. But it is always courteous to ask to visit out of hours many didn't.
(oh and its not out of focus... just it was blurred as it was blowing in the wind!)
