Can you guess which direction the wind comes from? This was taken at Humphrey Head in CUmbria and you can see Morecombe Bay in the background.

I'm glad I could be of service! :) The original looks better than the web version. My hat blew off twice and I had to chase it across the hillside. Then it started to pour down with rain and I got absolutely soaked to the skin. It was great! :D

Nice shot. Interesting how nature works. Go back on a moonlit night and get a shot with the moon rising behind it. That'd look spooky !

I'll bear that in mind. Might be a bit of a task to coordinate though as it is 120 miles from home. :)

Cheers. I stood near the fence and could lean over into the wind and not fall. Pretty wild. Made the rain hurt though! :(

Was it blowing in from the north? If so it must have been a cold wind-a-blowin :confused:
By the way beautiful photo, looks very desolate there.
