These lovely images are the work of Australian stylist Christine Rudolph. I have noticed Christine's name in a lot of my favourite magazines over the years and she always creates wonderful images. She makes me really want to jump on a bike and pedal to wherever this is!
If you prefer something a bit more formal, how about this...
If the countryside is really not your thing, perhaps you can be enticed by a meal on the Mediterranean coast?
Christine really has a way of creating atmosphere in her images. These aren't just props combined aournd a theme or great location, there is a mood to all the shots that creates a sense of a natural moment captured on film. I like the way in the image above the table linen has the folds in it as though it has just come out of the drawer for a casual lunch, on the stone table, under the vines...ahhhh wouldn't that be lovely
