Somerset Lavender Farm is a beautiful in Faulkland, Somerset near to Bath. They Harvest Lavender for its essential oil and they are open to the Public. Check out their website at http://www.somersetlavender.com.
Lucky for me there is also a foot rather which runs through the farm as they are not open at Sunset.
It’s that time of year for the inevitable Lavender shots but there’s a reason for that. Don’t they look great?!? I planned to take a portrait of our daughter but last night she wanted to watch Love Island! So, my creative escape was by scuppered by a reality TV programme!
There was a reasonable chance of a decent sunset, so I thought I would head over there. My first visit this season. It was a little touch a go but I quite liked the way the light played with the Lavender. It came and went so to get the best affect, I focus-stacked the lavender in the foreground and then took another image for the sky and blended them. It’s a composition but closer to what my eye was seeing then the Camera recorded. I hope you like it. 😊
Look out soon for a possible similar image with this as my background and a portrait… or maybe not. It might depend on Made in Essex or something like that.
