Somerset Lavender EDC076

Somerset Lavender EDC076 - England
Light transforms landscapes and there's no better example than this shot taken in the Somerset countryside near Bath. The Lavender farm is not far from me so I was able to visit on several Summer evenings when the lavender was in full bloom.

On this day there had been several Summer storms but the sun finally emerged from dark clouds to provide dramatic lighting not long before sunset. This terrific light contrasts so well against the retreating storm clouds, the green of the trees, the lavender colours and the warmth of the stone wall - photographers just love this light - its simply stunning. If you are in the area this Summer the farm is well worth a visit, it's a wonderful location, there's a lovely tea room and there's always a warm welcome - check it out at
