The Photo Gallery 148: Sun

IMG 4514 764x1024 The Photo Gallery 148: Sun

To me this epitomises everything that is good about summer in the UK.
Wearing shorts, hair blowing in the light breeze, walking barefoot through the grass while on a ramble in the countryside.
A shadow chases her, reminding us that the fierce sun is ever in our presence.
She returns home feet filthy, scratches on her legs from getting caught in brambles or stingers as she climbs a stile or a fence she’s not supposed to.
And a big smile on her face.

The sun is out in the UK at the moment and it’s something we’re really not used to given the weather over the past couple of years.
But BOY are we making the most of it.
(If I took my ‘big’ camera I wouldn’t be allowed to take photos like this, so I slip my phone in a pocket and that seems to be perfectly acceptable!)

    That's the beauty of the mobile phone these days though – I often just take that instead of the little camera. I like the rawness of the shots it gives sometimes.

    Oh I agree, I also love getting out early in the morning when it's still fresh but you can just feel the heat that is coming.

    The Boy has taken to barefoot play as well, it's so nice to feel the grass between your toes. Thanks for hosting.

    My Mornington Peninsula world in Australia is a Winter world right now, but we still have our sunny days.

    This is a beautiful shot and captures the moment beautifully. My son has gone feral in the sunshine and runs around all day with just shorts and a cap on, no t-shirt, no shoes or socks (with lots of sun cream obviously) There's no better feeling than cool grass between your toes on a baking hot day though.

    That's a great photo considering you took it on a phone! My photos from my phone are rubbish, I think I should upgrade!

  21. That is such a gorgeous photo. Thank you for such a great subject this week, I hope it persuades the sun to stick around ;-)
