This weeks challenge colour is Lavender and what immediately comes to mind is Lavender, the plant, but unfortunately I don’t have any. I tried, when we were in France. All I wanted was a picture of the rows of lavender but it was the wrong time of the year.
On looking through my immediate photos I found this landscape or riverscape on the Tweed River at dusk. I really haven’t changed the colour, that is the way it looked through my lens just after sunset. It was a nice late afternoon waiting for sunset when I set up near some fishermen who didn’t have as much luck as I did.
The photo is overlooking the Anchorage Island in Tweed Heads. Sounds fancy but its an area that happens to be an island, just, with a small bridge to cross to get to it. It is an estate and the council in their wisdom put up this lovely boardwalk for people to enjoy and it is a nice walk around that area and goes into a man made harbour for the people there that can afford a boat.
As I was driving past one afternoon I noticed it and thought it might be nice to take a picture of and I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, as a lot of times the picture you have in your head is nowhere near what it turns out to be. A plus on this occasion.
So to lavender.
