Welcome to the HEADER CHALLENGE Folks.
Its Kathy's choice this week.

SUMMER BEGINS - SUMMER SOLSTICE.

My music this week is by Mungo Jerry singing 
In the Summer Time -  recorded way back in 1970.


Let me show you folks whats Summer Time's like here in the good old UK.

This is My Header - My Summer Solstice Sun.

Here's my Summer Solstice Moon.


More summer sun
 Here we have a Grantham Sunset

 Here we have a St Ives Sunrise shining thru the window and reflecting on the shower wall in the bathroom

No - its not upside down - but  -  A Grantham Sunset - with one of my camera's on a table in the garden of a Bar reflecting the sunset - taken with my 2nd camera.

Now whats in store - oh yes --

I like that Solstice sun, but my favorite shot in this set is the house on the water. That's one of those postcard-perfect types of shots!

What a collection! Enough to do the whole summer not just the start. Beautiful sunsets and moon and all the rest as well.

Summer looks great in Merry Ole England! Magnificent sun and moon shots! (I was sorta expecting Stonehenge.) Love the pomp and pageantry you have. (Ours ramps up around July 1.)

You forgot to show the grey clouds and rain. That's summer these days. At least its got warmer now, even if the sun doesn't make much of an appearance

Make sure you don't delete these pics - you might need them in the depths of winter! Btw, you will have a great time in Scotland - you will have your camera permanently in front of your face!!

Oh wow - what an amazing set of shots. The sun is stunning as is the house reflected in the water and that duck with the sun on its back.

Summer in England is colorful and full of fun.
I love the duck conducting the orchestra. I think I will rename him "the Conducktor. "
My favorite photo of all of these is the red white and blue jet trails. Spectacular....

You seem to have lots of summer fun already - which is as it should be. A very nice summer to both of you!

These are great. Your treatments are really powerful.

The duck seems to be conducting the beginning of summer!
