WPC: The Forces of Nature: The wind

A Windy Day-014

Good morning from a cooler but calmer Hastings day.

I love doing challenges.  It means stretching myself to finding new photos and interpretations.  I have now got them written down to keep an idea what is coming up.  In particular for Cee’s challenges and Jennifer’s One Word Photo challenge.  Jennifer has finished with her colours and has now moved onto the weather.  Most of the weather phenomenon is easy – sun, clouds. storm.  But wind is invisible.  So I have been trying to get photos of branches and leaves moving in the wind.  I tried to slow the shutter speed but my fixed lens doesn’t stop down enough so I got some horribly over exposed images.

On Wednesday the weather was very windy so over the day I kept trying to get some photos of the branches bent over and blurry from movement.  This was the most successful photo of the day.

I will keep at it.  My next idea is to peg some towels on the washing line and take photos of the towels blowing in the wind.  Puts a whole new spin on Bob Dylan’s song “Blowing in the Wind”.

Anyway it is appropriate for The Daily Post‘s challenge today – Forces of Nature.
