Last summer I went on a trip to northeast Lithuania with my granddad of 77 years. We cycled over 240km in 2 days. Through tarmac with barren grass fields either side and through gravel amidst the woods. We would cool off in lakes much like this one as temperature would reach over 35C at lunchtime.
I reminisce about my childhood - cycling with friends down to the lake for the day, enjoying the beach, diving off the pier… Sometimes the day would stretch into an evening by campfire.
For me, this photo says everything there needs to be said about summer.
