Summer blue sky: Tsurugaoka-hachimanbu
Summer rainy season had already passed by without a trace. The countless colorful flowers of Ajisai had vanished completely like a fleeting illusion which the rainy sky had let me see.
Now the intense sunlight of midsummer is blazing on oppressively to erase the faintest memories of long rain from the summer sky.
Lush green trees and plants are thirstily absorbing strong sunlight to continue their robust growth with rapture. The rows of solid-white cirrocumulus clouds are firmly suspended in the true blue sky high above me.
