Emily, Corne, Theresa, Sherri and Margie thank you all so much.
Margie, I hope you are doing well, your remarks mean so much to me.
Corne, this was shot in Provence, southern France during a recent workshop I attended. Took many lavender filed shots, the place is full there. Have another one in my web site.
Regards - Andreas
