Taking pictures while laying in a buttercup meadow
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on June 9th, 2007. Click image for larger view.

Summer is here!! What is better than laying down in a meadow full of buttercups and just listen to the birds chirping, the insects buzzing and the occasional sound of my shutter taking a photo.

I’m planing on trekking the mountains you see in the background of this photo and I will of course bring my camera so stay tuned. Up there you get a fantastic view of many of the neighbor islands and the Atlantic ocean.

    What a beautiful photo, and even moreso, what a wonderful mental image.

    If only life were so simple for all of us – to lie down in a field of flowers under a beautiful blue sky.

    Your photos are a release for me from daily stressors. Thank you so much.
