Which way is the wind blowing?

Post by Matt Quinn » Wed Sep 06, 2017 11:56 pm

wind blowing (1 of 1).jpg


As the storm was blowing in from the bay on the right late this afternoon, I took this shot from inside my RAV4. The grass at the bottom was rocking to my right in a counterwind; the trees on the far shore were stooped from years of on-shore winds. On the far right, a tree/stump of some sort has been erected and a screen or protective fence installed around it. I have seen people sit around it at sunset. Mysterious. Matt

Very eye-catching! I also like as a panoramic with more emphasis on the grass vs. trees. "Which way is wind blowing" is a sore topic in Yakima the past many days: we are currently one step from "hazardous" air quality because of wildfires to our west and north (and maybe some of Montana's are here, too; I've lost track).

This is an interesting image with two panoramas hiding inside it. Wonderful! S-

I think I like the lower, but am unsure if it compares to the beauty of yours! S-

I prefer the lower one as well. I think it captures all three elements, sky, land and sea. Nicely done. Matt
