Hitchin Lavender, Hertfordshire


A 4 minute exposure of the rows of lavender at Hitchin Lavender, Cadwell Farm, Ickleford.  Hitchin lavender is probably my favourite local spot in Hertfordshire, providing a few weeks of fantastic opportunities every year.

The long exposure, giving movement in the clouds at the top left of the frame, adds a counterpoint to the extreme detail of the lavender at the bottom right of the image.  The sun had just dropped behing some clouds, out of frame, making the resulting image relatively softly lit, but with a range of lovely blue/purple tones filling the frame.
