Weekly Photo Challenge : Seasons…

It is summer in the Land Down Under. The temperatures hover around 30c degrees and it is humid.

The place to be is the beach…

Hundreds flock here. The ocean can be dangerous and people are urged to swim between the flags, under the watchful eye of the Lifeguards. You can just see the red and yellow flags in the top left hand side of the photo. So that is why so many people crowd into this small area when there is over 40 kilometers of beach to choose from.

In the background, to the south, is Burleigh Heads National Park with the hi-rise apartments and exclusive restaurants nestled between the ocean and the bush.

Further north along the beach it is not so crowded, no lifeguards to rescue you if you swim here. In the distance the jagged, hi-rise outline of Surfers Paradise rises through the heat haze.

Being born in the UK I go into a heat hibernation through January and February. Summer is the season of sweating, I search out places with air-conditioning, library, shopping centres, cinemas or even the cool shade beneath a tree with the sea breezes to cool me down, and dream of the cooler weather to come in March.

This week Jen asks us to share the season in our part of the world.

  2. Perhaps you need a trip up north! We had a dusting of snow last night and it’s cool and windy today. Your photos do a good job of capturing the heat and humidity. I can see why the beach is mobbed.

  3. As my late father (born in England) would say -“it’s not the heat, it’s the stupidity”. We seem to be getting more of your humidity down this way too, 😞

  6. Looks just like that here now. Not. 🙂 Seriously, I’ll look forward to the summer, but like Jude, I could forego the humidity.
