2013 Challenge, Week 23: Summer

Summer – that magical time when we can relax for a few months with not a care in the world. Well, maybe only for kids. Even if you don’t have time off, summer is still pretty awesome – vacations, camping, BBQ, swimming, relaxing on warm evenings. If you’re like me, June, July, and August go by far too fast, which is why this week’s theme is Summer. You get to capture some moments and share them with us.

This theme is wide open. You can share a place, activity, or anything related to summer. Swimming is probably the most iconic summer activity, so maybe you have a favorite swimming hole.

It’s summer (at least here in the US). Get out, have some fun, and take some photos.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
