Pine Trees along the Coast

The scent of pine trees, simply goes with the summer for me. I love the way nature has made them, so that they can withstand dry heat and cold winters. They provide great shade on the beach and give you lots to look at: from pine cones to the needle like leaves. I took these images on my recent vacation, and since they don't really fit with the rest of the travel series, I decided to take them out and post them seperately.

The editing is half way done, and I hope to have finished soon, but I'm not rushing, because I want them to be great. You can already see some preview images on my Facebook Page.

And maybe not everyone associates them with summer, but here in South Europe they are a very common natural landmark of the Adriatic Sea.

What is the smell of summer to you?

  4. Pine Trees are and always have been a favorite for me. Love the scent. Reminds me of Christmas tho.

    I guess my favorite summer scent would be the ocean breeze.

    2. Thanks for your visit. There are many things that remind me of summer but for those on the south of Europe this is surely one of them.

  5. Amazing plants, they survive fires but add fuel to them. I never associate them with summer though.

    I'll think again.

  7. What's not to like about pine trees! I even live in an area that's commonly known as the Piney Woods. It's the largest area of pine trees in Texas and even is a subject matter on Wikipedia! Beautiful shots as usual, Mersad.

  10. Excellent images. The cones are similar to ours but the needles differ. I associate them with winter though. In this area, the fragrance of fresh mown hay is indicative of summer days.

  16. Pine cones are fascinating indeed...My sheets hung on the line epitomizes summer for me...bringing them in and making up my beds with those fresh smelling sheets does it for me♪ http://lauriekazmierczak.com/cone-flowers/

  17. Ich liebe diese Pinienwälder und habe sie auch das erste Mal in Kroatien erleben können. Einfach nur toll dieser Duft.

    Liebe es überhaupt in der Natur die vielen Gerüche wahrnehmen zu können. Schon alleine am Abend wenn meine Trompetenbäume bzw. die Blüten ihre Düfte verströmen...meine Nase kann davon nie genug bekommen.

    Tolle Fotoimpressionen lieber Mersad.

    Hab ein schönes Wochenende und herzliche Grüsse
