Glasgow, Scotland, taken on July 29, 2016
Summer is short and precious in Scotland, but I feel like this summer had been way nicer and warmer than last year’s. At least the sun didn’t hesitate to shine, and surprisingly we got quite a few rainless days!

Arcachon, France, taken on August 26, 2012
The first time I visited the Dune du Pyla in Arcachon, I felt like it was the clearest day of that summer. The sky was so blue, the sand was so golden, and the stairway built to reach the top of the tallest sand dune in Europe could have been a stairway to heaven itself. The curve of the dune seemed to split the scene in half and half (although the ratio wasn’t exactly 50-50) – blue-and-gold, sky-and-sand, above-and-below, heaven-and-earth, cool-and-warm… 😉

Afloat in the clear waters, people relax as they swim and drift down the river Rhine across the city of Basel.

Trees are amazing things. At the end of my walk in the Edwards Gardens in Toronto last year, I saw this beautiful thing standing on the side of the path on a small hill. This is the most gorgeous tree I’ve seen in my life, so gorgeous that I thought it was fake at first. It almost seemed sculpted, polished, intentionally made to look so sturdy and so majestic. It wasn’t very tall and the trunk wasn’t the largest, but it gave off an aura of strength and wisdom, as if it’s endured so much during its lifetime that nothing could ever possibly knock it down.
