summer delight by A-l-a-s-s-e-a summer delight by A-l-a-s-s-e-a
you were there,
light yet composed, as in the just soft stare
of uncontested summer all things raise
plainly their seeming into seamless air...



11 000 lanterns flew over Poznań, Poland on the shortest Night of the year.
11 000 wishes.


:star: Happy Midsummer :star:
Trevlig Midsommar, Hyvńń Juhannusta, Herlige Sankthansafte and so on...

from Poznań with :heart:

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-06-30
A brilliant combination photo of the summer solstice celebrations. Imaging seeing thousands upon thousands of lanterns rising into the sky as you simply get lost in the moment. Capturing it is just remarkable. In awe!

Also suggested by *PutYourBraveFaceOn who said, "This deeply touching artwork is truly a delight. It brought tears to my eyes to see such an unique, peaceful and joyful atmosphere created by a large number of individuals. Humanity has almost lost the awareness that we are all guests on our Earth Home and we must unite in common goals, as nature and all its beings are one, living in a perfect interdependent balance. We must not forget that we depend on each other too, even if the line connecting us isn't as clear and vivid as many may need it to be. Help one another, share the beauty of a moment, share life - for it is a gift for all of us!"

And *Rosella-of-Daventry who said, "There are few things on this earth more beautiful than people coming together to put stars in the sky."

And `3wyl who said, "I think the colours contrast amazingly well and I feel as if that, coupled with the clarity, emphasises the beautiful atmosphere here, an atmosphere that you can physically feel, almost."

We have one of these events coming up in our city in a few weeks with 20,000 lanterns and seeing this collage makes me that much more excited to get out and try to shoot the event. Great work with this
