Now is the time of year to get this landscape classic shot in the bag.

Many lavender farms open their gates to the public when the plants flower during July and August, although the opening times don't typically tie in with the best light of early morning or early evening.

A friendly chat with the farmer and the offer of a free print may be all it takes to get permission to shoot during these times.

Getting low and close to foreground plants with a wide-angle lens will enable you to make the most of the leading lines created by the rows of lavender.

Take your time to find the most attractive sections of the field and look for something of interest on the horizon, be it a tree, the sun or an interesting sprinkling of clouds.

If you are shooting into the sun, then shooting with a smaller aperture can produce an attractive starburst effect.
