In the little Village I live in west and south of Ottawa, Almonte, it is perfect today. Supposed to be 26C today with big fluffy clouds. So far have seen deer and rabbits in the filed outside our house. Great day to shoot I think. Don
I'm reminded of the movie "Good Morning, Vietnam" wherein the DJ describes how hot it is. Usually, we'll have a sea breeze in late afternoon or even a shower, but the latter just adds to the humidity. Too hot to work in the darkroom located in garage, and too hot outdoors except early morning. But of course then the no-see-ums are plentiful.
For photography the weather/light is so important. Hence my original post which some may have thought strange.
Another forecast from Adelaide - yesterday was a beautiful Sunny winters day (I love it when the Sun shines in the middle of winter) with a top of 18 deg C (64 for those of you who still persist in using the antiquated temp measurement units). Today looks decisively crappy - still expected to get 17 C (62), but its very overcast and the wind feels rather brisk.
The oddest thing happened last weekend, though...we actually got snow in a few selected areas around Adelaide. Where I live we got some really wet sleet, but it was no where close to being cold enough for it to sit on the ground for more then a second or so. This is the first time I have ever known to get frozen non hail precipitation at my house.
Leaving winter down here in Oz and heading into Spring. Fine, sunny, a little breezy and ideal for a throttle on the MTB for lunch later. The cherry blossoms in the garden are blooming: that is a reminder the worst of winter has passed. Good! :)
Hoffy: we got snow flurries in Geelong and on the Great Divide on the same weekend snow fell at Mount Lofy in SA!
High 80's to low 90's on the coast of Florida at the Georgia border, 5 degrees hotter inland. Threats of rain are idle. Watching for hurricanes with fingers crossed.
