It was 102F here in Sugar Land this weekend with more hot, humid and hazy weather predicted for the next several weeks. It’s the time of year in Texas when things start to slow down just a bit. Folks that enjoy an active lifestyle will get up a few hours early for their daily run or walk, hoping to catch a cool breeze before the blazing sun takes it’s place in the sky. Other folks become creatures of the night, waiting till dusk for their activity and praying the mosquitos don’t eat them alive.
But for a photographer, summer is a season of magic. Those golden hours in the evenings seem to stretch on forever as the sun take’s its own sweet time setting in the west. The evening sky turns from a vivd blue to a pale green in the hours just before sunset and then to a golden yellow and ruby red as the sun dips below the horizon. Time seems to move a little slower here in summer and the sunsets last for hours. What more could a landscape photographer ask for?
I’m heading for the Hill Country later this week to work and sweat but mostly just to enjoy the summer. Y’all are welcome to join me anytime!
