Summer dreaming

Its that time of year again, winter is on the doorstep, with icy winds and cold heavy swells to keep many a surfer tucked up indoors waiting for the few sheltered sunny days. Summer seems like a distant memory, so take a look at these photos by Australian Rennie Ellis, shots of classic summers past. Although they're taken in Oz some have a British summer feel about them. Work from the Ellis estate. Above - back view ,Lorne 1968.
