Inspiration Avenue: Pocket Full of Sunshine

Sunshine Bench - Nikon D40 with 55mm lens


I love sunshine. I live in Florida, so it's kind of a requirement. Naturally, I was very excited for this week's challenge. One of my favorite things about natural light is the way it filters through trees. I especially like the "pockets" on the ferns behind this bench, under that banyan tree.

Head on over to Inspiration Avenue and check out those fantastic submissions.

Oh I love dappled sunlight, too. It is perfect, Chris. Send some our way, please. I love the sun and how it makes you feel. This is a very beautiful bench.
Xo,

Okay, before I comment on this wonderful photograph, I have to say that when I came to your blog this morning, I thought I'd gone to mine for a second because I now have the same background, lol!
This image is wonderful, I can totally see myself soaking up the warmth with a good book and a nice glass of wine...lovely!

It looks like you took this picture in Eden. What I wouldn't give for some nice warm sunshine on my bare arms...sigh. 3 more months.

And what a special place to sit and ponder too! I love sunshine passing through trees but then I love trees they are so special in themselves!
