There are two visuals that come to mind when I hear the word “summer”. One is bright green grass bathed in bright white sunlight, the sun is intense. The other is kind of a dying grass bathed in a dusty orange and pink light, the heat is warm- but not in an overpowering way.
It is summer here in Arizona, in both senses of the word. I captured this a few weeks back (our first 100 degree day of the year!). I think the light and the processing just perfectly captures the dusty orange and pink of summer.
