Wits-End-PC-Summertime

 

Seasonal challenges are another which are

often difficult if hosted in the northern hemisphere. 

However this time I do have

some summer time photos.

After leaving a chilly Australia in early June

we were surprised how warm it was in Alaska. 

Appears these Alaskan Huskies agreed with us.

They certainly enjoyed their dip

in the Chena River (Fairbanks)

after demonstrating their skills working as a team.

Wits End Weekly Photo Challenge: Summertime

Weekly-Weather-Summer

On January 1, 2013 some friends I hadn’t seen since 1976

arrived from Saskatchewan, Canada. One of the planned excursions was a drive along

The Great Ocean Road.

This shot, inside Lochard Gorge, was taken near

the end of that day.

The temperature was 44 degrees Celsius/111 degrees F

and the bitumen in the car park was melting.

It was summer.

 

 

Another sign that summer is on its way is

the erection of the Geelong Ferris wheel.

A sure sign that summer has arrived,

is the Ferris Wheel on Geelong’s Foreshore.

A few days ago construction still had not begun

so I assume summer is a few weeks away.

 

 January 4th, 2013 at Lochard Gorge.

Bitumen in the car park was melting

and after climbing down the steps to the sand

all I wanted to do was walk over to the shade,

and there seemed to be twice as many steps

back up to car park level.

The temperature was 44 degrees Celsius, that day.

Summertime!

A few days later snapped this photo

of my Canadian friends with a top layer on.

I was still in shorts.

Odd Ball

Week 46, 2016

~~~~~

On Thursday I was playing around with depth of field…

harvest_0192 and this is one of the shots.

I would have liked something better

than the tree branch for a foreground

and I think the break in the

background plantation (blue sky)

is a distraction.

So it becomes an Odd Ball entry…one

that I don’t know what to do with. 🙂
