Instant Summer

Winter and Spring have been holding hands for too long. Frost two weeks ago and now instant summer. Landscape suddenly bursting with green. I took some quick photos at a local lake already being visited by swimmers. Life is good in summer’s warm embrace.

Mind wanders

Circling the view

To capture

A bit of magic


V.J.’s theme: Circling


About Olga

I have always had an affinity for artistic endeavors and the beauties of nature. The power of the word combined with photography have become my creative spark.

    Winter and Spring have “been holding hands for too long” – well said. The sudden onset of summer has been so welcome. Beautifully captured, Olga.
