Sometimes I make old travel photos into my desktop wallpaper for the week. My current wallpaper is an amazing Big Sur sunset that I shot last January. But don’t get me started on Big Sur, because I won’t stop. Today’s Fine Art image successfully brings me back to a moment and place, and tugs at my soul (and my travel fever) that I’m not there. This image conjures up for me: gorgeous late afternoon light, warm sun on my shoulders, a quiet breeze, and air infused with lavender. We had just driven up and up along winding roads to a remote vineyard on a hilltop near Sonoma. After our laid back sampling in the tasting room, we made our way out to these divine lavender fields. Don’t you just want to be sitting on that bench? Sigh. Happy Friday–I hope your weekend travels take you somewhere memorable!
