A newcomer to Ireland arrives on a rainy day. He gets up the next day and it is raining. It also rains the day after that, and the day after that.He goes out to lunch and sees a young kid and asks out of despair, “Hey kid, does it ever stop raining around here?” The kid says: How do I know? I’m only six!
This year we have got a proper summer, no jokes! 🙂 County Tipperary has been bathing in sun since June.
It was one of the hottest days when I went to Kilsheelan, and I thought I would walk a little bit by the river. The cows on the opposite bank enjoyed the shade of a giant Oak tree and drank from the river till they were full.
Then they laid down for a nap, black islands in the sea of grass.
What a pleasure to walk along a path lined with lush grasses and delicate wild flowers. My summer favorite is poppy flower.
Another favorite is crop field. I love to take pictures of them in any weather, morning or night, and at any stage of their growth and harvest. What a fascinating sight they make, waving in the wind!
Abundance of sunlight this summer makes the greenery richer and foliage ticker.
Sometimes it is nice to hide from the burning sun in the woods…
…or under the thick canopy of linden trees in the churchyard.
What the summer looks like where you live?
Photography tip of the day: When the sun is high shoot your portraits in the open shade.
Have a great weekend!
