Clary Salvia (sage) and Barley Fields on the Plateau de Valensole in Provence, France.

Whilst looking for lavender I came across this beautiful vista, two contrasting fields with a backdrop of the Prealps mountain range. It was five o'clock in the morning as the pink sun spread across the fields.

The salvia is used as an essential oil and is wonderfully fragrant. The farmer it seems is doing a crop rotation. I loved this shot for its divide into two halves and its warmness.
