August Challenge - CLIMATE


Recommended Posts

I found this month's competition quite difficult. Anyway...

 

Christmas Eve 2018 - a warm day in The UK starting with water droplets on twigs in the garden. Definitely wasn't a 'White Christmas'.

28th June 2019 saw a heatwave in The UK.. we took advantage and went to Mudeford Beach in Dorest, UK. I was taking shots of the waves rolling onto the sand when a mother and daughter just walked into my shot and decided to play.

We seem to be getting more snow in The UK in the last couple of years than we have in the past couple of decades (could just be my imagination but...)

Thanks Bryan - the bonus was I stayed dry - shot it through the window!

Nine year's old image of the shrinking Rettenbach Glacier in Sölden, Austria. (Editing skills improved since then)
