Summer in Australia can be glorious. Most days are hot but occasionally you will get a day where the sky shimmers deep blue and the gum tree bark glows orange. A day you can walk without being fried up by the suns rays. Todays picture was taken on a walk just before tea when the harshest of the suns rays were dipping low in the sky. I could lie under a tree like this for hours and feel the shadows of the gum leaves dapple over me. I could but I won't as it is next to a road and they'd be calling the men in white coats for me!
