Celebrating Summer

It's the summer solstice; the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, the official beginning of Summer, and a magical time to be in San Luis Obispo.

To celebrate, the dogs and I took a nice hike up Cerro San Luis, "Madonna," Mountain to enjoy the scenery and warm weather. I don't often pack my camera up the mountain because I feel like it weighs me down, however, this time I enjoyed the opportunity it gave me to slow down and become more mindful. I found a vivid new world through my viewfinder that would normally get overlooked in my hurried steps.

 When I take the time to really look, it's easy to find beauty all around me - even in the weeds!

Here's to open trails, wildflowers, good dogs, and summer sun. Cheers!


  1. The days are coming to enjoy and moreover it will be good for the plants in the region. Stay safe from the heat strokes and more importantly have a keen look over your both dogs.

  2. Dogs look happy :) Your stunning photos are returned to the summer, to carefree, endless fun. I am looking for inspiration for my web site in the surrounding world like you do. By the way, do not you want to try yourself in macro photography? You would have succeeded!
