Lavender fields forever

In the summer holidays we always try and plan nice day trips that don’t cost too much and place an emphasis on good old-fashioned fun. On Thursday we took a short drive to the beautiful Somerset Lavender.

I have never taken my big camera to the lavender fields before and was excited to shoot the kids running around, exploring and having a lovely relaxed afternoon.

I found it quite difficult to get my camera to a setting where it picked up the detail of the lavender and captured the moving children at the same time. Luckily there wasn’t any bright sunlight so eventually I settled on 1/125 ISO 160 and F 5.6 which is probably completely wrong technically, but seemed to work.

I quickly snapped this one of Holly after we’d finished our picnic, and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I have so many more photographs I want to share so it will be lavender overload here for a bit!
