August moments


Hello, dear all! Today I would like to share with you some images of these warm, lazy August days and the equally lovely hazy August evenings.






























(The photos are almost Straight Out of the Camera. The colours and lighting haven't been adjusted. One or two images have been straightened and the one with birds has been cropped. All of them have been taken using a 55-200 zoom lens.)


















Participating in








Wishing you very happy August days... and evenings and nights and mornings!

  14. Kauniita kuvia, ihania kesätunnelmia!
    Meidänkin pihallamme lentelee erilaisia perhosia, niitä on kiva seurata.
    Sateenkaaren värit ovat kiehtovia ja koivun lehtien väreissä näkyy jo aavistus syksyä.

  19. Delightful lazy days of summer photos Sara. I had to look closely to realize it was a group of loons, I've only every seen one pair together at a time. The butterflies are now starting to appear in m butterfly garden - after the sweet scent of the butterfly bush mostly. When they show up you know summer is winding down but it has been one of the best for weather this year.
    I sure like the grass with the burgundy/purple seed head, a nice collage of your summer filled days.
