Breathtaking Aerial Photos Of A Lavender Field In Southern France By Samir Belhamra (12 Pics)

Samir Belhamra is a self-taught photographer and graphic designer who recently visited Valensole, Southern France, to take pictures of the beautiful blooming lavender fields, and his stunning pictures will take your breath away.

The lavenders only bloom once a year – typically from late June to early August. Samir told Bored Panda that for him, the lavender fields are not only one of the most beautiful places in France but also in the whole world.

Photographer Samir Belhamra visited the blooming lavender fields in Southern France and took breathtaking photos

The photographer had recently purchased a drone and wanted to take this opportunity to shoot the fields from the bird’s eye view. Needless to say, the aerial photos turned out amazing – you can almost smell the purple sea of French lavender!

Samir has only been interested in drone photography for a little over two years but has already collaborated with many well-known brands and had his photos featured in numerous art pages.

To edit his beautiful photos, Samir uses Lightroom for light retouching and Photoshop to achieve the mood he really wants.

Since we’ve seen many examples of tourists destroying nature just to get a nice picture, Samir wanted to add that he was 100% respectful of the farmer and his lavender field while taking the drone photos and believes all photographers should care about and respect nature.

The most common species of lavender grown around the world is the English lavender (Lavandula angustifolia). It is cultivated for its high-quality lavender oil.

Lavender oil is typically used as a perfume or for aromatherapy. It may also be used in massage therapy to induce relaxation through skin contact.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
