Thought that might get your attention Grin

Lavender is associated with folk magic. Carrying or inhaling lavender was reported to enable one to see ghosts.
A sprig of it carried in combination with a sprig of rosemary was said to preserve chastity. Lavender was also worn as protection against the evil eye.
During Roman times, flowers were sold for 100 denarii per pound, which was about the same as a month’s wages for a farm labourer, or fifty haircuts from the local barber.


My trip to Hitchin Lavender Farm wasn't exactly successful. It is only open on the 12th of each month and on July 12th only a few rows of the English variety were in flower. Our visit also coincided with the visit of a local cub scout pack who found the rows of flowers made excellent running tracks (see v3). v2 is the debut appearance of Mrs Whiterose (aka Tessa) studying the different varieties in the show garden.

v1 - Iso 200, f11, 1/320sec, 70mm on 7D

v2 - Iso 200, f18, 1/50sec, 105mm on 5d3

v3 - Iso 200, f11, 1/80sec, 200mm on 7D

Great images Dave, each with their own merits, V1 highlights the lavender and its frequent visitors, V2, as Herman says, nice to meet the Mrs she looks very intent and almost ready to fire off that camera of hers. V3 I think is brilliant. Even though you say your visit was not a total success; the colours here presented are so vibrant.

A sprig of it carried in combination with a sprig of rosemary was said to preserve chastity............. Do you think this still works after the horse has bolted, so to speak GrinGrinGrin I think I might get my son a tonne or two, since he is pregnant yet again.

A very interesting and informative intro from yourself, Dave: the use of wide aperture in V 1 is very effective and it's nice to see Mrs. Whiterose in V 2, standing between the rows of different colours.
And what enormously wide plantations of lavender in V 3, the presence of the cub scouts do allow one to appreciate such.
The colours are glorious on this visit, so you timed it well although access is very limited.

Wonderful colour.. beautifully taken. I like V3 most, full of life and a bit surreal.
Gosh, I see, you really love carrying your cameras about.... I can't carry two lenses, let alone cameras...Grin

I love them all Dave, partly because I love the colour. A couple of busy wee bees in V1 and love all those kids running through the rows in V3. Tell Mrs WhiteRose she must come along if we manage another day sometime in the distant future Grin. Moira

Greetings Dave.

Strangely I like V3. There is something about the boys running along the lines of lavender. It is possible that I remember boring trips to places and the entertainment I could find in the precious moments of freedom.

That said all three have the unique Whiterose quality.

Spot on.

Regards.

Gavin

Beautifully captured, I can almost smell the lavender. When we were in North Dakota the lavender fields looked like lakes when the wind blew across them.
Very much like the children running down the rows in v3.

Great lavender there, we went a couple of years ago. The hint of blue, although a slight distraction, works as a complimentary colour. Like the title!
