Chair of Summer!

A yellow adirondack chair's back, hilighted by sunlight, against a blue sky.
A sign of summer

This photo comes to you from the lovely Saginaw Valley, which (being downstate) is at least a month ahead of the UP in terms of seasons. We're just getting into summer up here, but this lovely chair was baking in the sun weeks ago.

This is an Adirondack chair, refinished and repainted by my father, baking out in the warm sun on a clear June day. The sun was right overhead, which made the light reflect off of the cross-braces in a very unusual way. To me, this photo looks how summer feels!

Thanks also to D. Travis North over at Shutter Photo for featuring this on his photo blog!

The light in this image is really wonderful. Almost cathedral-like.

This photo is beautiful! It makes me feel so relaxed and calm. Laura's description is perfect. This photo should be on display somewhere for others to enjoy. Bob agrees.JC

Oooh, I like this photo:) Um, yes, that's my kind of chair... ;-)

I've never seen a reflection like that. It's amazing. Looks like a wooden sunrise.

Congrats on the feature.

@Laura, Jan: Thanks!
@Summer: Weird light, isn't it? It was just the right time of day.
