Solstice

For this week’s Five, I’ve decided to keep it simple. Nothing too deep, just several shots I took on June 21, the first day of summer, at my parents’ cottage in Ontario, Canada. These photos were all taken well after 8:00 pm, and I could not help but marvel at the way the warm light of the late evening sun was caressing everything it touched. I decided to capture those moments on film: shining through the porch screens, reflecting on the lake, spotlighting my parents’ dog, Della. It is hard to believe that the days now are getting shorter with each setting sun. I hope you are enjoying summer as much as I am. For a Canadian, such as myself, it is a fleeting and exuberant season.

I feel like I am there with you and your parents. I love Canada and wish I could have been there.

Nice shots Andrew. Sometime the best things in life are right where we live. All we need to do is open our eyes and see them.
