Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer

With average January temps in the balmy 70s, it’s hard to think of summers here being less than year-round; especially when you ring in New Year’s Eve (and Day!) lying on the beach!  But while the seasons may be indistinct, the same cannot be said of our sunsets :arrow: no time of year are they more dramatic than now, when heat and humidity are at their highest!  Take a look:

A May Summer Sunset in Vero Beach

May 4th, 2012, Sunset in Vero Beach

Vero Beach Power Plant at Sunset, May 4, 2012

I snapped this sequence as we crossed the Loy Bridge from the island to the mainland, in very early May.  It was extremely hot and muggy, the bank of clouds a threatening  army on a west to east advance.  These pictures show the passing jet stream disturbance, a battlezone between clouds above and the clear, narrow strip below along the horizon.

From May through September, sunsets like this are a near-to-daily event in Vero Beach.   Sometimes the clouds bring rain, other times they don’t…but they always reflect beauty in the setting of a summer sun

Until next time……

      • Zoey the Cool Cat is very talktative.

        Was in Vero Beach back in 1994 when I was working out of Tampa building out cell sites for cell phones. My territory was the Tampa-Jacksonville-Miami triangle.

    • :) It’s been a hot month, that’s one sure thing!
      Yesterday we broke a record high temp for May 30 (93degrees)….which ushered in some serious t-storms…..that dumped over an inch of rain in a few hours…more of the same expected today!
      thanks for the comment, and I’ve got no doubt your summer in the city will be FUN!!
