Getting our hopes up

Our summer started out with cool weather and more-than-normal rainfall. But it soon got over that, and now it seems like maybe it’s never rained here. Ever. Not even a drop. And it’s hot, too – at or above 100 degrees for days at a time.

And that makes it seem like maybe this sign is being unnecessarily cruel.

(I am heading shortly to Chicago for a conference, where the high temperatures are forecast to be in the 70s. My work colleague and I had a discussion about packing; neither one of us can recall the right kind of clothes for that sort of weather.)

  1. I decided you lined up the sign and 2 of the poles for great DOF . Great way to also express the vastness of the open plains with the overall composition. Enjoy that cooler weather you will encounter. We could use some of that here .

    • I did work the angles to get the sign and the poles, and the nice surprise was the fence post just inside the frame on the left side. I am looking forward to the cooler weather and will try to send some of it your way.
