The temperatures this summer, locally and worldwide, seem to have been – and continue to be – brutal. Finally, nights are cooling down and the day’s highs are 85, not 105, in Fahrenheit (not C fortunately!).
Film, two images merged in PS6. Cosina CX-2, Agfa Vista 200.
The last week has been so hot- nearly 100F for several days – and sticky with 9% humidity! Yeah, laugh, but in a dry climate you become so aware of moisture, it’s absurd.
Right now, as I write this, the sky is yellowish with smoke from the nearby forest fires. The entire western US is ready to go up in flames, and when I think of our upcoming road trip, all of which is through the western US, I wonder if anything will be left for us to see.
Thus, an overcast day is just what I would like to see. Rain would be great.
This was taken with the Olympus XA4 and Fuji Pro 400H film.
Another photography film panorama, this time with only two images. Mount Clef is not really high – probably only a few hundred feet off the valley floor. Where I live, it is a series of valleys, located within the first mountain range in from the Pacific. Nonetheless, the hike up Mount Clef provides views around, out to sea, and into the deeper valley – the Santa Rosa Valley – behind the ridge. Right now, it’s rattlesnake season, so one treads carefully, on the trails, and looking around as you walk. Dogs are tightly on leash, if you have any brains.
Another image using Fuji Velvia 100 taken in March. Clouds are not “normal” in the dry areas where I live, so are very much appreciated by yours truly!
