Day 7 and one of my favourite places

Summer clouds Wallace Bridge

I don't have a great photo of this piece, and it's been living the
high life in a featured position in its wonderful owner's house.  
It captures the wonder of a Nova Scotia cloudscape.  This summer
Toronto has been giving Nova Scotia a run for its money with 
some spectacular clouds -- but nothing can really top (pardon
my pun) the clouds in Nova Scotia.  When I am there I'm dazzled
by one view after another that absolutely knocks me out.

So it's appropriate on this the last day of the challenge, that
my thoughts are straying to that gorgeous place -- where I'll
 go before the summer is over.  As we head into August
I catch myself filled with nostalgia for a summer so packed
with work that there was barely a moment to breathe, let
alone enjoy all that nature has to offer.  Still as an artist
I am drinking the beautiful images in any chance I get.

Have a loving your summer days day.
