Default Sumer Heat - Brown Hills

A summer scene - all the green has disappeared. These hills are covered with grass and wildflowers in the spring, but spend the summer looking hot and parched.



A stitched panorama of the area (the hills just before Gorman).

Hi mtngal

These shots certainly display a drier side of summer - which we here in South Australia can relate to.

The colours and 'folds in the land' of the 1st photo could have been taken in any number of places in / near the Mediterranean climatic parts of Australia.

I love the simple composition of photo #1... it speaks of the 'dry summer' that you are portraying.

The 2nd photo I also like - the panorama gives a feeling of a vaster open, dry, summer affected area.

Both photos are great for me to see. I love summer... and am eagerly awaiting warmer weather. It's 22 degrees here today... but that's about 7 degrees warmer than the average for this time of year.

Thanks for sharing your summer.

Paul

Thanks for the compliments. The first picture is the scene I had imagined/planned for the challenge, yesterday was the first chance I had to take it. The second one I threw in because I was happy with the way it came out - this isn't the first time I've stood at that spot and taken frames for a panorama.

Paul - I've always thought I would feel at home in the terrain of parts of your country - I've seen pictures that look very similar. I've also read about occasionally horrific brush fires down there, something we experience too often for my likes. I prefer winter over the long hot summers we have, so I'm envious of your weather right now.
