summery forests

Around this time of year the light green dapple of young forest leaves has been replaced by some proper deep green shade. I love it, especially on long walks in sunny weather - it feels like summer has really arrived:



I'm still on holiday, so please forgive if I can't pay you a return visit just yet. Meanwhile back to Robin's Summer Stock Sunday for your dose of summery sights.

Nice shade in the forest - could use some here - it is 92 degrees whole week long. Have nice vacation!

Absolutely beautiful. I guess you used the "portrait" setting on your camera? You inspire me to get outside and try some new shots. Thanks. Hope you are enjoying your holidays.

That is a great picture! I love the crisp detail of the branches against the more blurry distance. The green is lovely, too!

Oh my. That image is so beautiful it makes my heart ache.

It's one of those photos I just wish I could walk into. Enjoy your time away! (and take lots of pictures :) )

Love this photo - so serene!

(One of the leaves looks like a little fish swimming into the green - can you see which one I mean?)
