Water by the Lake on June 27th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

It’s true what they say that the air by the water feels different. This secluded area by Lake Ontario is one of my favourite discoveries this summer. I love sitting here and listening to the water lapping by the rocks and watching the waves meet the shore. If you’re lucky, you’ll spot some ducks with their ducklings nearby. If you’re even luckier, you’ll see a lovely sunset reflected off the water.

Vibrant Sunset on June 21st, 2021.

The first sunset of summer! We were definitely blessed by Mother Nature on this evening. The clouds in the afternoon looked wispy and hazy and I had a strong hunch we would be getting an intense sunset. And let me say, I really love it when I’m right!

One of my favourite things is just seeing the sky transform and change during sunsets like these. The sky changes from yellow to orange to red to pink and purple. I’m always snapping away, taking a million photos and trying to balance that out with trying to enjoy the spectacle before me.

I can only hope we have a bunch more of sunsets like these ahead of us!

Summer Trees on June 21st, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

First official day of summer, here we are! After what felt like forever, it has arrived! I’m not quite sure what kind of flowers these are, but they are so pretty! The tree pictured in the first two photos was a lot bigger than it looks. I felt so calm and at peace standing underneath it. It almost felt like a whole different world where sound was muted and the sunlight peeking through the leaves was warm and bright.

And like most floral related things this year, when we came back a week later, most of the flowers had sadly already dried up.

Pink Peonies on June 5th, 2021.

Digital, 2021.

Here are some beautiful peonies from the backyard. After getting shots of them as is, I wanted to play around with water droplets on their petals. So for that, I filled a spray bottle with water and ventured back into the backyard. I sprayed water around four or five times with a fine mist for the desired effect. Too much and the water droplets pooled together and fell right off the petal. I’m quite happy with the results!
