One of the places that must not be missed when visiting Tasmania is the Bridestowe Lavender Farm,especially during January before all the lavender is harvested.
Bridestowe Lavender Estate , at Nabowla, Tasmania is considered one of the State's most spectacular vistas during flowering in December and January. The 265 acre site is noted for its manicured fields of lavender, beautiful gardens and sophisticated tourist facilities and attracts visitors throughout the year.

Wow, this is a splendid picture of the lavender fields!
Excellent composition. I like the turning lines and the graphical effect created.
The background with the hazy mountain is also very beautiful.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Leslie ,
It could be a scene from Provence ! Superb capture of this lavanda field , with the elegant curves , and the beautiful BG (dark moutain and sky) .

Leslie, this is a fascinating scene filled with texture, colour, patterns and wonderful perspective by which the man made and inspired foreground garden is contrasted by the mystical mountain in the distance. Lovely. Best wishes. Klaudio.

A pity that I not can smell these wonderful rows of Lavender.
I like how you makes the curve of the rows, everything in direction of the mountain in background.
Very well composition, nice presentation too.
Thanks for sharing.

Love this composition - it's a different approach to the usual shots of lavender fields with its curves, and the backdrop formed by the mountains is a bonus !

I agree with Denis,this is a scene I would associate more with Provence,than with Tasmania.But of course it doesn´t change the fact the scene is beautiful.Your presentation of it is very attractive and even the cloudy sky doesn´t spoil it.Colors are magnificent.
Have a nice day

I would never had associated Tasmania with lavender fields. I enjoy the neat, curved rows of lavender sweeping into the distance. The grey sky holds the picture in - a lovely image.
Kind Regards, Ann

this is wonderful! The aromas must be heady here and a bee's paradise. I love the curves and the perfectly structured composition with the diagonal making it all so beautifully balanced. The lavender colours are echoed in the distant hillside haze. Stunning image Les!
Have a good week - Brian.

Brilliant curving lines of lavender Leslie and something I wouldn't associate with Australia at all! An original look at a favourite photographic subject. The four rows of green make the shot. Beautiful. Warm regards Rosmary

The purple and green curves are so pleasant to watch. Also they are in such a beautiful setting.
Kamilutka (3207) 2013-02-25 9:30
this is by all means very beautiful shot and I have to say I like everything about it. The chosen POV and delicate angle of the slope make the whole composition more interesting and all the subtle colors contrasting with each other create very special atmosphere. Mountains in the far distance finish off the whole scene in elegant way.

This one is truly awesome! Love the way you built the composition based on fantastic curves and lines of lavender field. The visual effect is brilliant! Excellent work. Thanks for sharing.

che belle queste curve di lavanda, la diversità dei colori delle linee, crea un bel colpo d'occhio.

A strong composition that instantly captures the eyes.
These purple curves are so esthetic, and the smaller green ones bring light in the frame.
Very well done!

Having been to this place myself, I can attest to its beauty and to the fantastic quality of your photo. I love the rich colours and the amazing perspective created by the rows of lavender. The sky is wonderful and the sharpness is incredible. A most beautiful photo of an enchanting place.

dreamily and wonderful frame you captured from lavender.
this pay sage is fondle eye.
sevy (13273) 2013-02-25 23:02
Very nice view. I like how the curves of the lavander are used in the composition to push the look toward the mountains in background. It gives a feeling of space to the shot.
Even the cloudy grey sky is participating to the mood, giving an overall blue-grey colors to the photo.
EstelleJ (921) 2013-02-26 11:34
A superb photo with gentle soft curves and subdued colors, wonderfully composed and executed shot.
Have a great week!

Excellent capture of the flowering fields - a study of patterns in the FG with a spectacular view in the BG.
I visited the Bridestowe Estate a few years ago, the weather was exactly like this! I hope you enjoyed lavenda icecream and/or cake.

wondedrfully composed photo with a lot of atmosphere. The dramatic sky, the hazy hills (both in different shades of blue), the diagonal line that divides the photo into two equal sized parts, and the parallel and circular lines of the lavender.
ourania (12397) 2013-03-03 8:11
I love the theme and composition of this picture. You have managed the long curving perspectives superbly and exalted their delightful rhythm effectively through a well considered narrow framing. I also love the diagonal that gives the upper part of the frame to an intriguing, silhouetted, distand landscape. The colours are very beautiful and so consistent with the theme. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,
mjw364 (3706) 2013-03-06 13:07
Great lines and colours and the way the well exposed f/g seems to be layered onto the shaded mountains creates depth. Great composition.
yquem46 (32271) 2013-03-06 13:11
Glad that i came across this one, posted when away to Morocco for a week
Just great !
Beautiful colors of the lavender, a nice BG and a clever compo in the curve of parallel lavender rows
bravo, have a nice evening

An eyecatching image The intensity of colour and the sweeping rows are very striking. The distant hills in softer tones make a perfect backdrop. Very well captured.
ecmel (1033) 2013-03-11 9:35
Turning lines of levanders give a great perspective to the composition. Soft natural colours also makes the photo more charming.
