POTN G-Series Speed Challenge #18 - 'Blowing in the wind'

I love breezes or wind blowing .
it shows movement which can be very poetic in everyday ordinary things we sometimes don't notice
the wind is something we can't touch but because it 'moves' other things so we know it is there.
why I love it (damage worries aside for now)

it's the air we breath ..at speed
moving across the earth's surface it touches so many things on the way
all these things are around us. some move gently in the wind.
some are flung about with it's stronger forces.
much can be lifted up into the air by it's touch.
leaves/hair/objects/ litter/clouds gliding across the sky/
especially soft materials, swirling around in beautiful dancing movements


good luck to you all

I look forward very much to seeing the wonderful shots and how your wild imagination's are put into play
please have the contents of the photographs as natural as possible

Wind enthusiasts.

This image was taken during a particularly stormy day at Poole Harbour. These guys must be serious about their sport to be out in this weather.

All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?
