Valensole II, France by Charlie Waite
Signed Landscape Print, Open edition
It is impossible to know precisely when the lavender on the plan de Valensole will be at its peak. After three failed attempts and wanting to make an image with the tree at the back of the image, one year in mild desperation I finally decided to employ a ‘lavender spy.’
A friendly receptionist in a hotel a few miles away offered to call me when he thought the lavender would be in full bloom. I received the call in mid-July and within 48 hours I was in mauve-washed Provence. If such a medal existed, I would have awarded the receptionist the Croix de lavande.
