Looks Like Summer — Lens-Artists Challenge #208

Hi all πŸ˜ƒ My entry for this week’s challenge, set by AndrΓ© of Solaner: Summer Vibes.

Looks like summer, but looks can be deceiving; these following shots were all taken a few years ago when my wife & I were staying in Malibu & Santa Monica. We were there in February, although it looks like summer.

Summer here means lots of green…

As well as lots of flowers for the butterflies & bees.

Summer is bright blue skies & yellow sands; we’re fortunate to have much quieter beaches 😁

For us, it’s getting out & about on our bikes…

…in all weathers β˜”οΈ

  1. The first batch of beach photos does look like summer. If it’s a day with good weather like that, I like going to the beach in winter too. Beautiful views but with much smaller crowds, as long as the wind’s not too brutal, haha.

  2. Coastal California is beautiful most all of the seasons Jez – you captured the spirit of summer for sure, if not the actual timeframe! but I have to laugh because my favorite is the image of the footprint – does that mean I’m weird?!?!

    1. Thanks, Tina 😊 It only makes you as weird as me (don’t know if that’s good or bad πŸ€”πŸ€£), it’s one of my favourites too πŸ˜ƒ

  3. What a fabulous collection of summer or California looking like summer photos. I can see that you and your other half, do indeed get around on your bikes. I enjoyed your photo response to this challenge Jez.

Great to hear your thoughts πŸ˜ƒ
