Languid summer days.....

It is the height of summer here in Australia, and too hot to think about cooking and taking photos of baking - so instead how about a nice cool summer drink and a sit in the shade....

Would you like a glass of iced tea?  The ice and the hint of condensation on the side of the glass I think really makes this image look refreshing.


 Glasses and china from my dear mother-in-law's china cabinet - beautiful aren't they?


I have added myself to the image below to show you the whole story. The images were purposely taken in mid-day sun, natural light, under the speckled shade of my pergola. I added a bit of warming filter in processing to give the feeling of summer heat!
Perhaps I should have had two glasses in the image - but then if I had company I wouldn't be able to just sit and read would I? but please do visit - and I will pour you a glass and we both could just sit in the shade and read.....


 Have a wonderful week!
Thank you for stopping by. I look forward to hearing from you.

  2. Hi Jill, love your photos of the nice cool drinks, your mother in laws glass ware and china is just beautiful, great for classy photos. The warming filter is a great choice. I have a friend from Edmonton that is down in Australia right now, in Adelaide. She will be going to Alice Springs next week for six weeks (into the Heat). Snowing here in Edmonton right now, but that drink looks oh so good. Have a great week.
