Incredibly Dreamy Lavender Field

At first glance, you may think these photos were taken in Provence, France at their world famous lavender fields. You may be surprised to find out that they're actually photographs of a large lavender field in Somerset, England, a place where, if you're lucky (or skilled), you can capture a once-in-a-lifetime shot.
The Somerset Lavender Farm is home to more than 50,000 lavender plants, rows of vibrant bushes spread amongst a 5-acre field. If you come at just the right time (usually June or July), you may be able to capture a photo that looks very similar to an Impressionist painting.
Photographer Antony Spencer, who shot the photo immediately above and below told The Daily Mail, "You have a window of just ten days each year when the lavender is at its best before it's harvested so it's a matter of getting up early and getting down to the field before sunrise. The light was absolutely phenomenal and made the lavender look beautiful. As a landscape photographer you only get those kind of moments once a year."
Especially love the photos of the lavender fields set against dramatic skies.
