Summer gauze . . .

I saw the word 'gauze' used to describe the early morning haze in their photograph this morning and it gave me pause.
That's exactly what summer days are - layered in gauze.
From early morning through the humid summer heat - all shrouded in gauze.
Yesterday I took up the brush and sprayed my palette and made the decision to use a different color than the typical cobalt or indigo for summer sky.
The sultry heated haze was pale yellow making the distant trees golden.
Even the greens are muted when clouded with heat shimmer.
