LAVENDER FIELDS – 29

This week the photography club took a trip to the Lavender Fields in Ickleford, near Hitchin, Hertfordshire. We chose a very hot day, but the lavender looked good, the bees were humming and the occasional splash of red from the poppies added to the scene.

From a selfish photographers perspective, it was quite crowded but I managed some shots to capture the colour – and the atmsophere.
