In the heat wave and with several active fires, the machines work in the harvesting of cereals. It is the harvest in the middle of the heat wave, as in the fields of Manlleu (Osona), where these images have been captured to The Photos of La Vanguardia Readers.

We are in harvest time, when machines work the harvested land to harvest its fruits, for example, wheat.

It is so hot and the ground is so dry that, as can be seen in the photographs, the machines raise a cloud behind them.

The heat wave is the season of the year in which the heat is strongest, both in the southern and northern hemispheres (six months out of phase with each other). The duration ranges between four and seven weeks, depending on the place.

The dog days begin a few weeks after the summer solstice (which occurs on June 21 in the northern hemisphere), because this is the time when the midday sun is as high as possible above the horizon. An approximate date is mid-July.

Now, as we are in the middle of a heat wave, it is not surprising that we can also say that this year the heat wave has been brought forward to mid-June, even if it is only for a few days.
