Finally a (sun)day worth being called a mid-summer day. Only a few more days and the wheat will get harvested.
These hot summer afternoons with crisp blue skies and a few white clouds are ideal for taking monochrome images. Takin either a yellow, a red or an orange filter to get such an amazing sky.
This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.
I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.
How well it is, having a sunny day after all the long grey and rainy weeks. OK, every now and then, there was a sunny moment between the rain. But most of the time we have had not only drizzling rain, but huge amounts of downpour. During few hours some regions suffered more rain, than during an average month. And, July and August are meant the hottest and driest months of the year.
Although we have had a nice sunny day, we only have had about 16°C. That’s at least 20 degrees too little. This also means it t-shirt weather when walking in the sun, but you need a jacket when walking in the shadows.
But, nevertheless, such a nice day does very well. Btw. the next rain front is expected to arrive here on Tuesday 😦
