Summer is characterized by bursts of energy—waving expanses of flowers, the hurried nest-building of birds, melting mountain snows that feed streams and rivers to…bursting. Human nature, for its part, becomes concerned with outdoor barbecues, summer softball leagues, and active relaxations.

When I was younger I took the warmth of summer sunshine for granted, and you’d think, as a photographer and after several decades, I would be attuned to the sun’s moods, but I still stumble occasionally in its wake. The best light doesn’t wait for anyone.

In The Big Picture gallery for June 22nd titled Here Comes the Sun, boston.com led off with this amazing NASA photograph. I considered different adjectives here but they are all inadequate useless to describe this.
