A Summer Landscape by Corot

The sun cast its summer brights all over the outdoors today, and the leafy trees cast their shadows. I love the contrasts in summer. One step can take you from face-reddening heat to cool, breezy shade. And water in summer is full of bright white shine right next to deep blacks and blues. The landscape in this painting looks perfect for an exciting exploration on foot. My son wants to be an explorer when he grows up. So do I.
