Six months of Cardinal Guzman’s The Changing Seasons? That’s the second longest commitment I’ve ever made- the first being marriage. So, if you click on the link above, you can get all the rules. In short, I am taking one photo a month in an area near Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas called Calico Basin. In that way, you will supposedly get to see the change of seasons around here. But around here there are no change of seasons. It’s just hot, more hot, and less hot. When I took this photo, we hadn’t even reached the summer solstice yet and it was already 108. Since then, still in the month of June, we have reached an official high of 115- even though the thermostat in my car read 120. Lately, the temperature has been hovering in the low 100’s. The rest of this week the forecast is for 110 today, 106 tomorrow, 107 Saturday, and 109 for Sunday. And all next week is more of the same. I can hardly wait for August, our hottest month. So, anyway, I had to cheat on the above photo. Rather than just a straight out of camera rendition of 108 degrees, I added a light leak and bleached out the image to approximate how hot it was.
It was hot!
Below is a slideshow of all the changes to date.
January through June.
