This is one of the photos I submitted for the photography contest. It's not one of my best photos, in fact, it's one of the earliest I took with my camera, so I was definitely not paying proper attention to aperture or shutter speed. It's actually kind of amazing that it even turned out. I was shooting in manual (dumb choice for a beginner and for trying to shoot an action-y shot). This woman had her two extremely well-behaved dogs playing fetch around this little bit of stream.
This photo feels very summery to me. Doesn't it make you just want to go frolic around at the beach?
