Summer represents passion, color, creativity, creation and action. It is a time for lazy days, afternoon walks, beach time, picnics, parties and fun. This time Photo of the month 2celebrates the triumph of light over darkness. Summer is associated with solar energy. We are physically drawn to the light of the sun, with color splashes from all the lush fauna, to the life source.

For many years, the summer solstice has inspired many outdoor festivals. People join together to enjoy and celebrate life. This month’s photo spread represents exactly that: a celebration of life. Enjoy summer!
