20200802_081339_8024263 Winter Morning Waves

Thirroul Beach, Illawarra, NSW view map

I keep seeing posts from the northern hemisphere about their summer.

Stuff summer, I say, I hate it and its accursed heat and humidity. Give me instead the ability to sleep comfortably during a chilly night, and awakening to crisp, clear mornings. Give me the gentle, pure light that we see here, with the ocean breaking on the beach beyond, driven in part by winds which have purified the air.

Give me enough warmth for people to head out into that surf to paddle board and surf, not that I would ever be insane enough to do such a thing, but that has nothing to do with the temperature.

And give me a Sunday morning breakfast of Eggs Benedict, juice and coffee at the beachside cafe, looking out over the ocean.

Winter in the Illawarra... yesss!

Only an Aussie can say this and genuinely mean it...winter here in Qld, ha, it's perfect. Been 26 to 28c this week, with winter rain and it's not often you can say that. Of course that could mean an early summer but since most of the east coast was destroyed in fires the past summer there's not anything left to burn...however I hope winter lasts a bit longer yet.

So nicely composed. Love how the top of the bench is even with the horizon. Yes, the heat of summer can be a bit much!

I hate the heat too. A perfect covid capture. V

That actually looks better than a lot of our summer days this year.
Nice strong composition
