It is very hard to properly appreciate landscapes that have surrounded you since birth. Having been born in Southern France and now studying in the city, in Canada, this picture has grown on me since I have left. More importantly, it has made me appreciate and miss French landscapes.

This picture is somewhat of an attempt to capture the essence of the French landscape that is Provence. It was taken in the summer of my final year in high-school and remains a fond memory.

I had a composition in mind as soon as my girlfriend and I got on the road. I wanted endless rows of blooming lavender, leading to some kind of background interest – be it a small, stone cabin or a row of cypress trees.

As we were driving along, my eye caught on to these two trees, standing out, perfectly framed by the rows of violet. I set up my tripod and took the picture.

Post-processing was a little difficult as it was noon when I captured the image, but I managed to bring back colour in the sky and add a slight violet tint to match with the lavender.

The openness of the landscape reminds me of the default Windows XP background, of the green hill with the blue sky. If I am lucky, Windows will be contacting me soon.

This month we closed the magazine issue with this stunning landscape picture. We would like to thank the photographer for uploading it.
