Default When the wind blows it REALLY blows!

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!

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 !

You could add some very interesting PS effects to that picture. Great image.

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
By the way beautiful photo, looks very desolate there.
