The Purple Lavender

Cotswolds Lavender Fields

This summer, all the flowers, plants and trees are 2 to 3 weeks late.  After the late appearance of the poppies, it was noticeable that the purple lavender was also not as rich in colour as last year.  This did not stop us making a visit to the Cotswolds lavender fields.  This year we had all three grandchildren with us and there are so many photographic opportunities.  However, whilst the location is superb, trying to get three young children who love nothing more than running up and down the lines of the lavender fields to stay still for photos is more difficult.  Whilst the lavender are in the early stages of growing, the wild flower fields were up and running.  Yet again great for the children to be running around.

After a picnic, we moved onto Broadway Tower which is nearby.  Compared to last year when the pandemic had made such visits more worrying, this year it looked like a normal English summer around the Tower.  The only tale tail sign were people wearing masks when in the local shop and restaurant.  The views were good and the tower looked as always so interesting.  Looking to get a different picture, I wandered around and shot upwards to avoid the crowds.  I was happy with my picture but then again, the traditional view when you first see the tower is always an inspiring one.

Photography started many years ago when I was influenced by my father who was a keen amateur photographer who loved slide and cine film. I had a black and white Kodax camera and quickly progressed to colour prints and slides. 35mm pictures chronicle my family growing up. But it was the digital age combined with the reach of social media that opened my eyes to a new world of photography and I am still learning. My favourite subjects are travel, people, macro and of course Birmingham! Damien Walmsley Twitter @dammo Instagram @dammodammo
