One of the four seasons that results from the Earth's axial tilt of 23.44° against the sun as it orbits around the sun.
Summer happens when a hemisphere reaches its closest distance from the sun. When this happens, the hemisphere takes in more direct sunlight and warms more. This is why summer is culturally associated with warm weather. Generally, summer is associated with the months of June, July and August in the Northern Hemisphere, and December, January and February in the Southern Hemisphere.
Tag a picture summer when the setting (not just a background with seasonal vibes) of the picture shows traditional signs of summer, be it:
- Lighter clothing by the characters in the pictures
- Attempts at cooling the body, be it with a fan, shaved_ice, popsicle, etc.
- Vibrant flora
- A noticeably brighter setting with the sun being higher and closer. Shade is more pronounced with the higher sun angle.
