Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #104: Summer

As we announced last week, the team has a special “surprise” for July. We are hosting the theme “Seasons” for the entire month. This week, the theme is “summer”.

During the pandemic, I’ve missed the summertime that we spent in Southern California. Beaches are well-known for their warm weather throughout the year. Photos below were taken at Huntington State Beach in 2017.

“I Love how summer just wraps its arms around you like a warm blanket.”  — Kellie Elmore

Some beaches are perfect for swimming and water activities like surfing, kayaking, and snorkeling.

“When the days get long, the stars shine brighter, your hair get lighter, the water gets warmer, the music gets louder, and life gets better.”   — Unknown

Lady Bird Lake is a jewel of Austin, Texas. It is a great place to take a walk, kayak, ride a boat, paddle board…  Actually it is more like a river than a lake. People enjoy canoeing and kayaking on a warm summer Sunday morning in the Lady Bird Lake:

Zilker Park is considered “Austin’s most-loved park”, the River that flows through the heart of Texas. The Barton Springs Pool is a happy spot for kids during summer. Hopefully life will be back to normal again soon.

We invite you to join us this week’s summer theme. As always we encourage you to use our “Lens-Artists” tag for inclusion in our WP Reader section.
