The First Day of Summer?

I took this picture on Sunday - one day before the official start of summer in Australia - but nobody had told the weather.  It was pretty hot and by mid-day a heat haze had kicked in, making this distant view of Melbourne a touch more abstract than normal.



You can find more pictures from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

  4. First day of winter. All in all, I think I'll take what we've been given today--rather mild beginning to the season.

  12. Heat shimmers interfered with my photography of a rare bird this weekend. Grrrr. Neat affect it has in this photo, though. Almost like it's only a mirage.
