When i came back from Gordes (see last post) in the middle of the night and being caught by a speed camera with whopping 6 km/h too much i decided to give myself a break for the last remaining morning in Valensole and get some sleep instead. In expectation of getting the usual prediction of a mediocre sunrise i opened the “The Photographer`s Ephemeris“ app on my mobile and instantly changed my mind: The red overlay on the map indicated a glorious sunrise in the area!
Up until then i avoided the most popular locations like the plague, mainly because of the presence of the huge crowd whenever i came along at one of these spots. But in the absence of better alternatives i chose the well known and frequently photographed “House with a tree location“ and had the place - to my own surprise - for myself when I arrived 1,5 hours before sunrise.
Well, at least for 10 minutes …
The first fellow photographer stalked stiffly out of his on-location-parked car, where he obviously spent a sleepless night, given the grumpy glances he gave me. Little by little other people poured in, at the time i took this shot there were already 7 persons (see the accompanying image on my facebook page in the comments section here) squeezing themselves in those few square meters, and when the light slowly got uninteresting i counted a good dozen of photographers.
Taking into consideration the beautiful sunrise i didn’t regret the romantic tripod legs’ footsie playing, but even decided to use the soft light of the now cloud covered sun at the arguably most iconic location in Valensole, Lavande Angelvin.
By the way: That was also the first field i had a look at after my arrival 3 days before, and the very beginning of my instant love for instagirls, thus being a perfect ending of my journey to the purple lavender fields of Valensole.
