Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer

This photograph was captured in the very peak of  a German summer’s day. The serene green is deceptive because the heat on that day was almost unbearable, at a sweltering 40 degrees. Captured in the gardens of  Sanssouci,  the  ‘summer palace’ of  Frederick the Great, in Potsdam near Berlin.

I decided to add a touch of drama from Shakespeare’s  Sonnet –

And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines…

  1. I’m struck by just how green it is there! I’m moving there this fall, so I hope they have some nice foliage too.
