I came across this photo a few days ago and it took my breath away, for more reasons than one. First of all it’s a spectacular photo. I don’t know who took it, but he deserves to be commended for his photographic eye.
Secondly, it makes me yearn for a cold weather climate. Where I live in west central Florida the weather in mid-August is downright oppressive. The temperature in the afternoon often reaches the mid-nineties and the humidity is also close to ninety. Conditions are so stifling I don’t even think about going outdoors before dark, except to get inside my car and turn on the air conditioning.
After I retired from practicing law I began renting apartments in Berlin, Germany every summer, to get away from the Florida heat. I’d leave June first and not return until the end of August. Summers in Berlin are delightful: highs in the mid-70s and lows in the mid-50s. But it’s been years since I spent a summer in Berlin.
Maybe I should do that again?
