Six months into 2012 and we finally have warm weather here in central Illinois, not counting this past week, of course. The sun has shone and the gardens that the fiancĂ© and I have put together are only a week or two away from being ready to start initial harvesting; it’s a beautiful thing.

Summer will officially be here before you know it and I can’t wait. I felt this image of a beautiful sunflower back-lit by the sunset near the end of a summer day was a great way to celebrate the coming warmth and sun. I captured this image last year during an evening outing to Banner Marsh, southwest of Peoria, with the other Peoria Flickr administrators.

From time to time, we enjoy hitting a spot after work and snapping a few images in a small group. Someone suggested Banner Marsh and since I had never been, I decided to tag along.

The place was amazing and the light was perfect. We all ended up with some beautiful images including the one you see here, which is yours to download and enjoy.

So how do you celebrate summer? Cooking out? Hiking? Maybe snapping a few images yourself?

Please Note: I’m trusting all of you with these images. They are copyrighted, but I wish they didn’t have to be. With that in mind, please use them for their intended purpose and please don’t “steal” them; stealing is bad. Thanks!
