Stars And Stripes

Lavender fields in Provence are an awesome photographic subject, mainly because those coloured rows provide excellent leading lines. A lot of photographers go there before the harvest and I can now easily understand why. It was the first time for me in Provence and I was impressed on how many sources of inspiration I got while on the fields.

 

Apart from the "classical" photos during the day, I wanted to take a night pano since this area has a "fair" dark sky in the night (even if you can see a lot of light pollution near the centre of the surrounding villages). On my last day I found this spot thanks to my friend Antonio Gaudencio and I was lucky it was properly exposed for the Milky Way.

 

It wasn't a great night, because Italy lost against Germany in the Euro 2016 quarter of final... but a clear sky in a dark place like this brought finally some relief! :-)

 

I hope you enjoy this shot:
