To many nature photographers, no muse is quite as magical as a field of flowers. This tried and true subject is particularly popular with aerial photographers, whose atmospheric shots allow us to explore the mesmerizing meadows from soaring perspectives. One photographer taking this trend to new heights is Samir Belhamra, a visual artist whose love of aerial photography landed him in a lavender field in France.

Situated in Valensole, a picturesque town in Provence, this field of flowers blankets the golden landscape in shades of purple. In order to capture the extent of the site's sprawling beauty, Belhamra begins his video at ground level. Slowly, he directs his DJI Mavic Air drone toward the sky in order to showcase the perfectly organized and seemingly endless rows of flowers from various vantage points.

This awe-inspiring footage is not Belhamra's only experience shooting the fragrant field. In a series of photos shared on his Instagram, the photographer further documents the site. Together with his video, these photos prove the unmistakable beauty of the field, whether photographed on a starry night or filmed from a summer sky.

While in Valensole, a commune in Provence, France, photographer Samir Belhamra captured several stunning shots of a lavender field.
