They don't generally look too bad but the conditions are against you. At this time of year heat-haze is a problem at the times you're clearly shooting (light is harsh, giving nasty contrast) so my only advice would be to go out either early morning (sunrise-0800) or evening (1800-sunset).

20C is still plenty warm enough for haze to develop across open land. Hope you enjoy your 8-12 visit but just bear in mind that the results likely won't be acceptable here unless you can get pretty close to the action.

I agree with Karl.

Regarding heat haze; viewtopic.php?t=921469
So you can have heat haze at any time throughout the year (although less likely in the mornings, evening and at night).

Sorry, but can you please use dots and commas? Your posts are very hard to read.

74mm on a crop body for a 738 is pretty close, however still not close enough to eliminate haze after around 0800. Sometimes there's just no way to defy physics.
