Well it is summer here and from Dec 1st to the end of February the sun shines and many Aussies hit the beach with surf boards, body boards and picnics and barbecues. Here is my son taking advantage of the fine weather.:-)

Just looking at that picture would not make me think of Christmas or Winter holidays. However, knowing your location, it puts a whole different slant on it.

I think you have answered a question of mine but perhaps you can confirm a theory. In the Southern hemisphere, this is the warm season of the year. Do you officially call it summer or winter? Summer implies hot while winter implies cold. However, if I look at calendars marked with international holidays and events, I see this time of year marked as Winter. So what do you call it down under?

100F, jeez, I'm practically freezing here in Hawaii with nighttime temperatures of 65-70F.

Now there's a fella who loves his sport. Reminds me ofa locally made Christmas card that shows Santa surfing.

Aloha

Selvin, you need to get out and experience the world. The temperatures here have been in the 30s-40s (F) up to about a week before Christmas and then it warmed up to the high 50s to low 60s. I think I prefer 60s over 100.

Nice shot Julie, I like the aspect ratio you chose to crop this like.

If you want to be further confused, just think of the time of year it was locally whenthe Sydney summer Olympics were held.
