Summer afternoon, summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language. – Henry James
From the photographer: Marty Schoo
Summer days. When the days are long and warm. Dry skies make for fun in the sun. Life’s a beach!
Until that one day when hot becomes too hot and we welcome the cool change. The clouds build and become skyscrapers of the sky.
The winds change. The cool air arrives. Rain cools the earth and skin alike.
This image was taken above Central Victorian Victoria skies near Bendigo.
The clouds were building to the north of me over the course of the afternoon. Finally late in the day with the clouds building to an impressive up-sweeping crescendo the vivid sunset light streamed through a horizon pocket washing the entire scene in glorious orange.
A fleeting half minute was all and the light pocket closed over, the colour disappeared, and the rains arrived.
Witness to the summer change.
