Summer has arrived in the UK: my first ouzo and ice in the garden :)

Lens is a 50mm Super Takumar circa 1960. First photo is probably F1.4 and second maybe F4.0 -notice the difference in bokeh (the blurring of the background).

Cheers!

To quote the Morecombe and Wise sketch

Ernie- 'It's nice out isn't it'.
Eric - Yes, I think I'll get mine out as well'.

One of (many) reasons to live way up north is that we have a (sometimes) very loong spring. The natur is slowly coming into full bloom.

We usually have plenty of time to prepare for the summer during a long and nice spring.

or, in one sentence

We are close to spring now :-rofl2

Days are getting 5 mins longer every day until Midsommer (in June) when we have no dark at all. Love the spring Hail the Summer

I´ll have a drink as well:)

Cheers Dig :-beer:-slurp:-cheers

As the days lengthen, may your body strengthen
As the nights brighten may your pocket lighten ( well it would if you drink all night and don't go the bed ) :)

Summer by the sea in Scandinavia, and Winter in a cosy wooden house. Heaven.

Im still waiting for summer to arrive here! It certainly hasnt started yet - the lawn is so wet it was squelching when I was working on one of my dishes yesterday evening, and by the time Id realigned the 19E dish which got knocked when I was strimming round it at the weekend the lawn was a churned up muddy morass around that dish :-Nooo

Two of my ouzo shots are going to be used in a Japanese travel magazine in a Greece special. No money but better than nothing :)

yess here also,but the weater is very strange 3 days nearly 30 degrees,then back to 14 degrees up again and back,this makes me very tiered!
the wather stablility from the 90`s i never seen again..
and thats real bad,only because oif the reason the cut every 2 minutes like a football field of trees,in the brazil rainforest..
more and more rain coming,lighting intensitivy in the mauntain is much more higher now since 4 years then before,always strong front wind when i go biking,begining 10 o clock change again the direction and 16h,this before never happen so intensive!
sensitive electronics are in danger when lighting come suddenly,i often think about the wirst case scenario when all my elctronics are gone,i hope this never happen,but sometimes i cannot sleep good in the night when iam thinking to much about this!
