Landscape – Provence in Summer

Summer 2015, canicule (heat wave)
Driving in a white Fiat, rented at the Aix-en-Provence TGV


The journeys were worth as much as the destination – those long drives beneath the billowy clouds and that famous Provencal light, chancing upon fields of beaming sunflowers, listening to our favourite tracks, eating overripe apricots and chips, talking about the past and the future, and the hot, beautiful present.


The destinations were mostly tiny sleepy villages in brilliant Provençal colours, silent and secretive in the summer light.
