travel theme: fragrant

How do you capture a smell with a photograph? This was the challenge Ailsa set us this week.

In July in Provence you would expect to be able to smell the lavender

but would you expect to be able to smell lavender under snow? We drove up to Sault, high up in the Vaucluse in Provence, in April some years ago and were horrified to discover that everywhere was still under snow. What I wasn’t prepared for, was that when we got out of the car, the smell of lavender, even in the cold air, was almost overpowering.
