Summer solstice brings some warm light

Summer solstice is great because it gives us the most time to enjoy in one day. The longest day of the year! But that’s rather a strange thing because when you find yourself in a great location, surrounded with people you love, time never seems too long. What’s supposed to be the longest day actually feels like the shorter. Let’s call it “quality time”.

From a photographic perspective, solstice is a gift when the weather is good. The light is just amazing at the end of the day and the golden hour is maximized. I shot this old fountain in a garden in Saint-Paul de Vence. The light just falls nicely on the rock and roses, every leaf has a softness that makes you forget how painful it could be if you grab one of the stem and touch the thorns. This photo is all about the opposite : warmth, softness, fragility, beauty and even romance.

While this is not Fountain of Youth, it certainly feels good looking at it and even smell the roses when you stand close to it. I hope you like it.

Good Light!
