The day I took these pictures, it hit 95. What saved it from being absolutely stifling was a drop in dewpoint, from 73 to 67. That made all the difference.
I took these early, though–around eight in the morning–and although it was humid with no breeze, the walk was pleasant. I have noticed when I’m taking photos, however, I don’t notice things like temperature and humidity. Once, while chasing a dragonfly, I spent a lot of time in direct sun and ended up with a light sunburn.
The first thing I noticed was this display in the front yard of a new resident. Okay, it’s a little corny–strings of beads representing falling water–but it definitely caught my eye when the sun made them sparkle as they turned in a light breeze.
There was a fire overnight, and smoke was still hazing the air. I could smell and see it. Graphic software helped clear that haze away. Notice the limpkin fishing in the water behind the stand of plants on the right? Click, and you’ll see him.
See you next time.
