Sunflowers & Lavender

Sunflowers & Lavender

Sunflowers and Lavender on the Valensole Plateau at sunset. Situated at 590 m altitude, the village of Valensole in Provence has given its name to the whole plateau. The plateau is mainly dedicated to the cultivation of lavender and grain. It changes in look with the seasons; the snowy peaks and the blooming almond trees of March are replaced in July with the changing purple of lavender and the golden wheat. In November, the ochre of the furrowed land contrasts with the pure blue winter skies.

I photographed the Lavender of Valensole for 3 weeks in July 2010, searching high and low for locations. This was my favourite with the wonderful combination of Lavender and Sunflowers side by side at dawn.
