A SUMMER AFTERNOON

Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape

Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.

  8. Gorgeous landscapes. OH my, is that wild water lily? I have to special order them from a nursery. Here you are, have the wild one. Rosa, are they your doggie? so cute, and happy playing in the water like that. My son, love to take our dogs to the beach and let them running freely....

  9. ELRA: Yes, it is a wild water lily... Well, those grow in a pond next to the Arve river in France (5 minutes away from my home in Switzerland!). Unfortunately, they are not my dogs... I'd love to have one though!

  11. These photographs are ethereal! There is an open-ended mystery to these shots that makes me want to step right in and travel the paths to see where they lead. Cheers!
