Summer Lovin’: Rattlesnake Mountain

20140726-203009-73809745.jpg

We’re on summer vacation in New Hampshire, as we do.  Last week, I climbed Rattlesnake Mountain with my son Simon and daughter Eliza. A short hike with a phenomenal view of Squam Lake (of “On Golden Pond” fame). To me, this photo of my son taking a selfie at the summit- all blues and greens and heat and sweat and joy in summiting – is all about summer.

As I told my kids, “Remember this scene in January.”

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge this week calls for photos that show an unusual perspective on a subject.  I chose a fairly traditional subject – a flagpole -and experimented with several different points of view.  Enjoy!
