wet and wild and windy

Back to the beach today. Very nearly couldn’t open the car door for the wind slamming it shut. Now I need to do some lens cleaning, but could not resist these wild shots of the wind playing with the surf…..

If for a moment you are inclined to regard these taluses as mere draggled, chaotic dumps, climb to the top of one of them, and run down without any haggling, puttering hesitation, boldly jumping from boulder to boulder with even speed. You will then find your feet playing a tune, and quickly discover the music and poetry of these magnificent rock piles — a fine lesson; and all Nature’s wildness tells the same story — the shocks and outbursts of earthquakes, volcanoes, geysers, roaring, thundering waves and floods, the silent uprush of sap in plants, storms of every sort — each and all are the orderly beauty-making love-beats of Nature’s heart.

  1. Totally agree with you Gunta, I prefer the wilder seas to those which are calmer. The energy makes me feel more alive. Beautiful and the John Muir quote is a lovely choice. 🙂

    • I very much appreciate the concern, but I’m too chicken not to be careful. These were all shot from a relatively flat parking lot. Didn’t even get out of the car for some. Main area of concern was the camera and lens (I used my long zoom).
