This peaceful scene shows row upon row of lavender in bloom.

It was captured during summer at the Bridestowe Estate Lavender Farm in Tasmania, Australia. This large lavender farm grows true lavender, narrow-leaved lavender, common lavender or English lavender – Lavandula angustifolia (also Lavandula spica or Lavandula vera).

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
