A beautiful region in the southeast of France bordered by the Mediterranean Sea and Italy, Provence is covered with a beautiful violet carpet of lavender fields from mid-June to mid-August. The fascinating beautiful fields and the unusual pleasant smell of flowerings can be felt in every corner of the cosy villages of Valensole. This time of the year is flooded with photographers coming from far across lands to capture the beautiful lands of violent strips leaving the horizon in the Provence. The spell bounding view halts the time with the ancient stones houses leaving an overwhelming expression.
The photo tour that we plan to conduct will comprise of sessions angling the most beautiful scenic views at the sunrise and the sunset in the lavender fields. For your interest, we have also congregated some interesting places. Some of these places are very popular with photographers; while others are waiting to meet their photographers to uncover its beauty.
Thinking about the warm provenance evening with a glass of wine in a beautiful little cottage, the footage shot for the day will be discussed.
Without any doubt, the beauty of the Provence landscape will forever stay in our hearts.
The visit to the Grandiose Verdon Gorge is in process as we just don't want to miss the view of eagles circling over the steep cliffs and far below the Mountain Rivers.
The second part of the photo tour will be dedicated to the iconic white Camargue horses. This breed of horses is semi-wild and almost white in colour that is found living in the delta of Rhone in a natural park located in the south of France. More commonly, these are called as "Seahorses". I bet there is nothing more bewitching than watching these beautiful white graceful horses run over the sea in the rays of the low sun. These photos will definitely become a diamond edition in the albums of any photographer.
Camargue is animals who very strong and beautiful and are capable to live in reserve as well as in close captivity.
We will experience a great opportunity to photo capture the horses during the dawn and the sunset for two consecutive days. The cowboys will take the horses to the shore especially for us, which will allow us to capture them from multidimensional angles.
