Summer Blues

Blue on Blue


It’s been a summer nicer than most.
Plenty of sunshine punctuated by days of good rain, and temperatures only occasionally reaching into the nineties. The feeling in the air, less humid than describes an Ohio River Valley summer.
Months like these, I could take again and again.

Already the evenings have grown cool. Heavy mist rises off the tall wildflowers in the field as the sun warms them each day.

Summer has hurried past on its way to autumn.

The first image has a lovely blue tinge to it. I do like how you have snuck the farm building in on the right. Adds just the right amount of drama to the image.

Hi Nina... the colours might be blue but feelings I get when seeing and reading your work is far from being in blue... I always feel better for my visits here as I'm sure many others do.
