Summer Dreams

Sometimes in winter, I dream of summer.
I can't help it. It just happens.
I like the geese.
Other stuff happens that I like too.

This is so beautiful, Karen. I love the subtle HDR processing...not too overpowering.
 
Wow! If only dreams were this good! ;-)
 
Great picture Karen, I don't know if is me but I feel like the horizon line is a little bit tilt to the right. But then again the picture is great!!!
 
Damn it, first comment, and I accidentally deleted it. :(

I like the curves -- the treeline parallel to the clouds, the cloud in the water that seems to squeeze between the grasses, and the curving path that almost seems to lead to the sun.

Is this HDR? If so, I like the fact it's not overdone.
 
wow
sooooooooooooo beautiful

This my first few moments on G+ and I have to say, this photo was the first to adorn my experience here. Very nice work! It's awesome!
 
How in the world did you get this shot? Photoshop?
 
Ok, after getting a glimpse of your other stuff...Wow!
 
Wow! I've never seen a photo that makes me want to look around the corner so much, fantastic composition to lead the eye out to the house, and then wander down stream to the sun and all back down the road and back again. There is such a depth in the photo. Magnificent!
 
seeing your pictures I feel better for the rest of the day they are very beautiful
 
Summer is the best season, the sunshine is amazing :)
 
Beautiful colours ! Really love the way the eye is moved around the photo due to the river and the light.

Looks amazing but why are the clouds green?

This is gorgeous! Where was the original picture taken?
 
Greate picture, Karen! Good HDR processing :-)
 
This is beautiful. I would like to try to paint this.
 
This is an exquisite photo! I wish I had been there to see it!
 
This is really beautiful image. It makes want to live in that house so I can see this everyday.
 
Thank you, thank you everyone! How lovely that you've enjoyed this one! For those who asked, it was taken near Lake Tahoe, California. Nature was definitely 'on' that day!

In my head I am currently sipping lemonade, walking barefoot and contemplating how I want to spend my lazy summer day. This looks like a lovely place to spend it!
