Winds at Meyers Creek Beach

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 19 June 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Just 33 miles (53 km) south of yesterday's post - the winds along the coast were howling. Here the sand along the beach was traveling fast - and both my face and camera were being sand-blasted.

Another view from this same spot - tomorrow.

I like these long fine sand beaches which the sea left the time of the low tide

I really like these pastel colors, the composition is really good too with the diagonal of vegetation on the foreground. Very well done Stephen :)

Such beautiful colors and worth a bit of sand blasting for this shot, can clearly see the motion of the sand so cool

Looks like the perfect place for wind surfing.

@Ralph Jones: I don't know Ralph - this might have been over the line. If you have a chance, have a look back tomorrow and let me know what you think. A surprising spot was a stretch of the Columbia River Gorge near the town of Hood River - about two dozen wind and kite surfers were just flying. The ones beneath The Golden Gate Bridge just have me pondering a sanity check. Hope you are having a fine weekend.

@Susan: And great weekend wishes back at you, Susan. And - yes - as to our craft - - - the sacrifices do seem unending. Sigh...

Peace and solitude, great beach.

@Phil David Alexander Morris: I'm a little uncertain about the 'peace' part - the winds were blowing a steady full gale. Nevertheless - this is one of my all time favorite beaches and I always manage time for a stop - and usually a welcome walk after hours of driving - but not this day.

I'm enjoying your trip from my easy chair in a freshly painted living room...no grit. I could email you some humidity and bugs : ]

@ordinaryimages: Oh, heavens, Jerry - - - no, no, no, no, no; please keep the humidity and bugs right there - 'on location' so to speak. I'll be sure and drop by to get them as soon as I'm ready for them. A week or so after the second hard freeze sounds about right. Congrats on that freshly painted living room. Enjoy the view from that easy chair - it sounds to be well earned.
