A short drive south from my home brings you to the magical light and colours of Provence. I took a trip down there this week just before the harvesting of the Lavander. A fabulous circuit from Grignan to Montelimar full of surprises and colourful undulating landscapes. Together with Dancer/model Nais and fellow photographer Didier (who acted as lighting assistant on this occasion) we found some delightful 'champs de lavande'.
All the non-French resident photographers who organise 'Group' trips only visit Valensole but they have missed this area! Every photo tourist has been to valensole to take the same photos and now you have to fight to get a position and you end up with the same as everyone else!
This place is still an undiscovered gem and you wont be fighting for a position! It's true, there is no stone cabanon in the middle of the field, but with a little imagination and a few accesories you can create something different from the 'classic' landscape.
So why not give it a try. If you want more details of this area, contact me by the contact form... you wont regret it!
Stay creative and dont follow the herd!
Until next time....
