Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer

We needed no more encouragement than the WordPress weekly photo challenge theme of “Summer” today, to get us posting this picture that sums up summer pretty well for the both of us. Sand, shells, sparkling clear blue Pacific ocean and just a smattering of perfect cotton candy clouds on the horizon… bliss. In fact, this is one of our absolute favourite photos that we took on our honeymoon earlier this year; I’m sure you can see why! Just looking at us takes us right back there to that moment when we ran into the ocean, so much so I can almost hear the sound of that splash as the water first hits your body as you dive on in…

    • Timers can be funny things – and we were completely lucky this one worked out! The photo really does help keep the memories fresh, especially as the Netherlands (famous for…mastery of water?) is not famous for sun. Thanks for the comment!

  2. Yea, that pretty well sums up summer for me too. Were you lucky, or rehearsed, for the timer?

    • Sometimes with the timer we try and be a little rehearsed, but this shot was pure luck! I like the way it captured the splash so well!

      • Yes – I saw that and assumed it was you who’d set the timer?

      • Yes, it sure was. So it involved a lot of fast running and keeping our fingers crossed the shot would work out!

        Enjoying the photos on your blog too – amazing landscapes that you are capturing!

        Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on foldedcranes.com again. We hope you will enjoy keeping coming back!
