Henning my friend! :-)

Here's the answer?  ;-) Sit out on the back deck in the cool of the shade 
with a glass of a fine wine or ale at hand and to heck with the heat and 
picture taking!  :-) :-)  Well OK for a day or so. :-)

That's the prescription for the heat!

Or given where we live by the sea! ;-) One might consider a walk along doing 
a series of photos on waves breaking as the gentle sea breezes keeps one 
cool and relaxed.

Take one LEICA M and one lens, stay cool & relaxed look for a few neat sand 
images and water creating new images with each wave swoosh! :-)

There you go now and have a nice afternoon!  :-)

A bigger problem than the heat, directly, is that this year there has been 
no rain here southwestern BC. Month after month this year we?ve had record 
high temperatures with record amounts of sunshine, record low precipitation 
and record number of wildfires. Well, not everything has been a record, but 
close, and this every month since Christmas.

We locals and and visitors might complain about the (usual) rain, but we 
depend upon rain. Drought like California?s is obviously something 
completely different, but still.

Also, there?s all this continual high contrast. The lighting is awful. C?mon!
