Take It To The Limit

Docklands, Hamburg, Germany.
January 2011. 35mm.

Click here to see the digital version taken on the same night. This time, I like the picture taken with the 5D Mark II more than the one taken on film.

So put me on a highway
And show me a sign
And take it to the limit
One more time

My friends and I have done some research in preparation of our road trip around France, but the list of places we would like to visit is rather short - it's been years since any of us has been to France - and on account of the next semester being a rather busy one for all of us, I would like to ask for your help.

If you have been to France and would like to recommend a beach, city, national park, restaurant, a scenic lavender field, or anything else that might come to your mind, we would very much appreciate your comment. Thank you very much!

Have a great weekend.

- Dom

Very cool photo!! "A scenic lavendar field" - I get it but it's funny too :) Wish I could help you, but alas my expertise lies not in that area!
On my end though, it looks like I'll be flying into London and spending some time there as well before heading to Italy. I'd like to see the English countryside, you know for the "Englishness". Do you know of such a place for that? And, is it too difficult to do a daytrip to the Cotswolds from London? Maybe I should just ask what you recommend (if you don't mind me asking)?

I want to find that lavender field that every photographer has taken a picture of... there's hundreds of images on the internet. It's a cliché, but it's a beautiful one.

No, I don't mind at all - it's always a pleasure to share travel stories with other people. I'll write you an email later.

Thank you Donnie! Carnac is on my list already, but I've never heard of the other two.
