CHAR­LIE WAITE tells the story of how he cap­tured this month’s cover im­age: “Some­one only has to men­tion the re­gion of Provence, and your mind im­me­di­ately sum­mons up im­ages of vast swathes of laven­der. If you are for­tu­nate enough to come across a farmer who likes to go Tech­ni­color, there is a fair chance of find­ing a field of laven­der ad­ja­cent to a field of what I call the ‘comic crop’ sun­flow­ers.

“If laven­der is your bag, tim­ing is ev­ery­thing in Provence. It can be hot in this mar­vel­lous re­gion, but there will al­ways be some fine stone barns in which to find some shade, or the leg­endary Se­nanque Abbey for a pause.

“Near the Ca­mar­gue, made so fa­mous with ram­pag­ing horses, there are gen­tle stretches of reed flanked canals that may have some ap­peal, and there is al­ways more laven­der.” www.ligh­tand­land.co.uk
