I can still smell the air on that trail at Washington Pass, a perfect mix of cold and freshness, so I’ve been looking through my photos for some shots that fit with the fresh theme. Snow for me epitomizes freshness so I’m starting off with a snowy photo from Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park.
Everything feels fresher after a rain shower, with the added bonus of sparkling raindrops scattering light all around. This was taken at Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island shortly after a cloudburst.
An inventive way of keeping roses fresh; a rose man in Rome douses his bouquet in a fountain.
Fresh berries at a farmer’s market in California, mmmm.

I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning. – J.B. Priestly
I am so fresh in soul and spirit that life gushes and bubbles around me in a thousand springs. – Robert Schumann
The fruits are tempting
I know, I got hungry just looking at that photo 🙂

Fresh – just what you need on a hot summer day: http://geriatrixfotogallerie.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/travel-theme-fresh/
Nice one, Cheers! 🙂
ah; yesterday in quito we bought fresh corn from a lady walking between lanes at a traffic stop! one dollar for five ears, and i immediately smelled the corn – so very fresh!!!!
too bad that i didn’t take a photo!
Ooh, sounds delicious, was it multi-colored corn? There’s nothing quite like freshly picked corn on the cob. Yum.
no; the kernels were pale yellowish-white that spiraled around the husk; the ears were short and stumpy and tapered to a sharp point.. we cooked them on the grill, and each kernel was al dente — eating this corn is like stepping back in time and was a grand culinary experience!

Early morning summer freshness! http://annarashbrook.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/travel-themefresh/
I love seeing the plum tree in all its summer greenery, Anna – such a difference from the wintry snow-covered photo. 🙂
Such beautiful ‘Fresh’ images, Ailsa. Those berries look delicious and so healthy. 🙂
They were pretty tasty, Sylvia, I couldn’t resist getting some to munch on as I browsed through the market. 🙂
It’s very hot now in Italy… So great theme to have a bit of fresh !
Wonderful shots, Max, but my favourite is the outdoor shower, what a great way to escape the heat. Stay cool! 🙂
