Saved by the Breeze


This isn't anything earth shaking... just tree-shaking (chuckle). Today was yet another horribly hot day (supposedly one more to go), but it was saved by a bit of a breeze. If you look just above the tree tops you'll see a daytime moon. These are quaking aspen, and they tremble in the wind. I just like it.

Seeing those trees blowing in the wind does help give at least the illusion of a cooler day. I can do without this heat.

Why we who from different corners of the globe are having the same hot weather?

I love the sound of the wind in the aspens. So soothing and peaceful.

we've had a couple of hot ones here too. It was up to 93 this afternoon.

Thank you. We had aspens back home. (Colorado)

the video made a lot of difference, it brings magic and coolness and definitely extra-ordinary, which if simply a picture of a tree like that won't.

Ratty - Well, it really was more than an illusion. Without the breeze it would have been brutal. But I've sure had enough for one year.

rainfield- don't know, but isn't is supposed to be hot where you are?

Chuck- it really is. sometimes i can sit and just watch the trees for a long long time

Ann- too hot for me!

Vanilla- you must have them in Indiana too...

betchai- yup... a still shot just doesn't do it, while just half a minute of video nailed it!

The sound of those leaves rustling in the wind is so calming and peaceful. The day moon is always a gorgeous sight for me and it was a treat to see it in this video.

Too hot for them here; we are just below the extreme southern edge of their range.
