95 Degrees

How hot does it get in Palm Springs?

In April, it can be scorching. I know this from experience.

The Palm Springs Photo Festival was a magnet for me and some like-minded friends. It drew us here from all over the world. We immersed ourselves in photography and fellowship, all the while dodging the brutal sun.

When the theory got too heavy, I turned to the practical. That meant going outside in the blazing April sun.

This was a quick portrait session that happened just outside the walls of the hotel where we had congegated.

It was a mere 95 degrees in the shade. All participants survived.
