Heat Haze

Heat haze on the southwestern wheat plains of Queensland just after harvest in early December.

Ile de Ré Reflections: There were lots of these tear drop shaped bladder things in the rock pools above the oyster farms at Pointe de Grouin. I don't know what they are (the remains of jellyfish maybe?). I didn't touch one, so I don't know what they consisted of really.

  1. I might be wrong, but I think those are bladders that help kelp-like algae float in the water.

  2. chm: that's a thought. They seemed rather large for that, and not rigid. The bladders I've seen have been more like grape size -- these were 10 cm and over, and did not seem to have any sort of real skin.
