Heatwave Noir



"It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight."

--Raymond Chandler

Well, you just did it didn't you? Man oh man. I have never been able to get those rays in a picture. And to make it noir? WOW!!!!!

Where is the commenting public? Is everyone hiding from the heat indoors? We've actually had a cool down and it has been wonderful, except for fueling the fires nearby. Luckily, the shift of direction, and die down the past couple of days has really helped.

This photo is just amazing. I may need a print. ;)

If I knew what this is I would comment. As for the "hit and runners" who never comment, I don't know what to say about them, except, you are seeing a show without buying a ticket.

I'm in awe of this photograph. I have never seen water mist and sun rays together like this. Spectacular!!!

Great shot!

I think everyone must be indoors blogging about Sunday's rainbows.

I didn't see them but I was out taking photo after photo - now up on VIEW...I even got rained on!
Come on over and see what I got. I include a song too!
