Another spring photograph...obviously. Not the most exciting picture, but it is...green. Yesterday it got up to 112° F, and the high today is supposed to be 113°. For those of you outside the US, that's 45° C.

Thanks for all of your comments; my apologies that I have not had time to reply to many emails.

Freash green, full of latent life. It is a great time of year Ryan. I guess with those temperatures the green will soon turn yellow/brown.

45 ēC? That's totally unreasonable.

It's not exciting, no, but it is very verdant and fresh looking. A shame that it can't dispel the scorching heat!

Thanks for your comments.

This photo was actually taken in February. The greens turned to browns long ago. :)

beautiful greens. and nice cool shadows. it's only in the 90s here, but we don't have a/c yet (in the process of), so I can relate a bit. and it really does have a feeling of coolness . . . as in not hot . . . not the slang . . .

wow, too tired for this. sorry.

This has beautiful light / softness in this shot. The green is lovely too. You're probably missing that now that everything is dead, eh?

You can keep the heat. I don't understand how people can live in that. But then again, people don't understand how we handle 6-months of wintertime :)

Green today, golden tomorrow!

I especially like how the stalks spring from the dark depth, while the ears dance in the sun's rays.

Wow, great patterns. Did you lie down to take this shot?

I have been complaining that Malaysia is very hot (av. 32C) but 45C is like half boiling temperature. Crazy!

Do drink more water dude!
