Have a nice summer!

Yesterday was the summer equinox, so the winter is soon upon us ...
No, I'm kidding. As a matter of fact we have had full summer the last few days with lots of sun. Even though we are far from the polar circle the sun sets late - the photo above was shot yesterday at almost exactly 22.00. Let the flower and the sunlight symbolize a golden summer!

The summer always leads to less blogging for me, so also this year. I'll be mostly here, I but may be a little bit there and everywhere too (according to my personal quantum theory ...). So -

Have a nice week-end and a nice summer!

So does being close to the polar circle extend your 'golden hour'? This it wonderful light for so late in the day.

Simple pleasures!

Barbara said...

What gorgeous light and colours - I can't believe how light it is at that time. I will be grateful when the sun isn't waking me up quite so early in the morning though :O)

Nydelig, Rune! Jeg fornemmer helt klart sommer her ... lite sol eller lave temperaturer skal ikke være til hinder for at jeg skal føle på sommerstemningen. Lange lyse sommerkvelder, blomster i krukker, en kald pils på terrassen (selv om varmelampa må stå på) er noe av det som får meg i rett modus :) Håper du får oppleve mange gode sommerkvelder i ukene fremover!

Sommerklem fra Drammen i (nesten) regn :o)

PS: Grillen er varm og jeg skal ta på meg fleecen

I wish you a fine a nice summer, Rune! I hope you'll get better weather than we have had here today: Rain, rain - and rain! (but fortunately we have had lovely and warm summer days and evenings, too)

I hope you have a glorious summer, Rune. It really is bright at 22:00 there, isn't it?

Ida said...

Veldig fint!
Vakkert og varmt kveldslys.
La oss håpe på mange fine dager fremover, ja.
Og slike kvelder, ikke minst.

Fortsatt god sommer!

Gry said...

Så sprudlende optimistisk du er da!

Nei da, men jeg ønsker deg en riktig fin og tørr sommer! Du vet regner det på presten så....

Those are great colors indeed--sun-like, I think. I hope you show up more often than you think you will.

Veldig huslig og koselig - smelter damehjerter, dette lille skjønne bildet. For å være helt ærlig - jeg orker ikke ordet "vinter" så jeg bare hopper over og koser meg med sommeren også i dette halvåret!

Anne said...

Uansett hva planene er, uansett hvor ferden går Rune, ta kamera med og lager masse flotte blinkskudd for oss :-)

Mindre blogging blir med oss alle du vet, en må nyte sommeren nå mens den er her, blir tidsnokk mørkt igjen!!

TTace care kjære venn. Anneklem.

I can smell your summer from here while it's raining and foggy in this side of the world.

Enjoy walking on sunshine. :)
