The story behind the image

Here’s just a fun shot from our short trip to Seeboden in Austria three weeks ago. We were back from the public beach (which is really a pier with large greens attached) and had some time before we went to one of the nearby restaurants. In the garden of our holiday appartment there are several apple trees and many beach chairs. I sat down and gazed to the sky, and then I realized how relaxed I was. The sun! The blue sky! The apple trees! And I took my camera and captured the moment.

I have rarely used the tiny EF-M 22 mm lens and was really surprised of the high image quality, especially the beautiful rays surrounding the sun at f/22. Lovely.
