The Smile of Nature by Kirsten Bruening

Do you remember infinite and warm summer evenings? This photo was taken on the edge of a forest, the blue flowers have been intensely lit and smelled in the early evening sun. In the entire field of flowers, small busy bees and bumblebees flew from flower to flower. The sun was setting, so that all nature was wrapped in magical light.
