Looking back in time

Lavender has been grown around the Mitcham/Carshalton/Sutton area of south London since the 1500's. Scenes like this would have covered many, many miles until it's decline in the last century. A few fields have been replanted in recent years - this is one of them!
Look around at the beautiful rows of deep lavender, close your eyes, and take a long, deep breath........

Definitely best viewed large if you have time
Fantastic colors and shot! Would love to see this!

@roseolivia Thanks. It's certainly worth a visit - really amazing. It's Mayfield Lavender - easy to find on google. Enjoy, if you visit :)

I love the leading lines and placement of the tree - very well composed photo, and gorgeous colors! It tells a wonderful story and I feel like I can smell the lavender. Just curious - part of the sky looks blown, but part of the sky is still blue. Is this because of clouds or the location of the sun, or something I'm not thinking about? I wonder if it's possible to restore part of the blue sky in lightroom. Beautiful capture!
