Summer is the season of the midnight sun in the far northern hemisphere. There is splendid landscape and time-lapse photography in this video of “Midnight Sun | Iceland” shot by Scientifantastic.
Best viewed fullscreen and in HD (the embedded video is HD), “Midnight Sun” was shot over a 17-day period in June 2011 by Scientifantastic. If you like mountains, sky, water, oceancoast, and spectacular scenery, you should love this video! Some of the mountainscapes almost look like abstract paintings.

In my view, these simple old roses are far lovelier than the modern over-hybridized ones.

More pink summer cosmos. There’s something quintessentially summer about pink cosmos in the garden. Would be lovely sitting in the garden, surrounded by pink cosmos in the shade, sipping a Cosmopolitan…

I quite like the contrast between the figure and the stone. Shot at the Getty Center. The work is Summer by Aristede Maillol.
