Beauty of purple lavender

Lavender fields in Provence were as beautiful as I had imagined them to be. No wonder there are so many tourist operators taking people from all over the World to this breathtaking spot in France.  I went there last July (2018) with a company specialising in photoshooting trips, Photographes du Monde. We visited several different fields during the 4 day trip, but the most gorgeous ones were at Valensole Plateau area. It is at Valensole where you can find those undulating fields that seem to continue to infinity.

Take a look below to see the reality behind the camera. Valensole area is the first one in which I have actually seen traffic signs on the roads warning drivers of squatting or standing photographers with tripods!

What we came across were also women in white dresses getting their pictures taken by professional photographers or their boyfriends. One family had picnic set-up for photographing purposes. I managed to sneak some pictures while they were not looking.

One more picture! Red, blazing poppies were lurking on the sides of some lavender fields. Poppies are my mom’s favorites, so I had to take this picture for her! ❤
