One time in Orlando when I was spotting the temperature was in the high 90s! It was hot I spotted for like 30 mins that day.

Spotting during the summer in Austin is impossible 🙁

Yup. I’ve seen the feels like temperature at 111 degrees once 🥵

Accidentally hit the post button very early again
Finished now

Low nineties but it felt like 100

Damn, thats real hot!

Great shots! One suggestion, wouldn’t suggest f/11 unless you’re doing long exposures and want the starbursts, it might be a little tiny tiny bit sharper than f/8 but you’re sacrificing a decent amount of light that you could be using to use a quicker shutter speed or lower ISO which will make more difference than that tiny increase in sharpness.

The reason it’s so hot there is because of humidity

Yeah that’s definitely right. I saw my camera settings before going outside but for some reason I didn’t change it. Honestly have no clue why I didn’t get the shutter up in exchange for lower aperture. Maybe the heat messed with me, idk 🤷‍♂️ Runway shots were pretty bad cause of the heat n haze.

Since i British I convert to Celsius which is about 31 degrees C, that is hot, but if you ever go to a place like Muscat, the temperature feels like an oven

Yeah I can’t imagine spotting in a desert
