The Power Of Green

Light and shade reflected on tree leaves and grass

Light and shade make a glade look magical

Bramble leaves lit up by sunlight are a highlight in a wood

Bramble leaves act as a light catcher

In celebration of the first day of summer, and the longest day in our hemisphere, I’m sharing pictures taken earlier this week in Sefton Park, Liverpool. What a blessing access to a green space can be! It was lovely to see so many people out enjoying an early evening stroll, lying on the grass or resting on a bench there.

Happy solstice!

      It would have been be lovely to see what you would have come up with. Unusually for me, I only took the one of the bramble leaves. It was as if they had an arrow over them, saying click in this direction!

        It’s the sort of shot and lighting I’m watching out for at the moment with my experiments adapting various lenses to the mirrorless camera.

    And a happy solstice to you, too! The photos are wonderfully uplifting — they cool and warm all at once. Perfect for the day!

      Thank you. They seemed to illustrate the power of where the sun falls, which made me think of Stonehenge and that ancient effort to mark the precise spot on a particular day.

    Green is a favourite of mine (you may have noticed!) and I love capturing the light and shade and the sunlight through leaves. Lovely cool images Susan and here’s to a lovely summer for us all!
