POTD: Going With the Flow

Going With the Flow
Washburne State Park, Oregon
2021

I’ve been to the coast many times and I’ve seen the sand dunes and the trees that grow bent inland from the strong winds that often frequent the area. But I’ve never been on the beach during such winds before. I quickly found you don’t really want to walk into the wind unless you’re looking for a facial scrub and you definitely don’t want to photograph into the wind. Even shooting downwind, I ended up having to carefully go over my camera with a brush to remove all the sand from the various nooks and crannies. Off the beach even a few yards into the trees it’s quite calm by comparison so I walked to the beach on one trail from our campsite, walked with the wind down the beach and back up into the trees at another access trail and then back to the campground in the trees. That worked quite well.

    1. Well, even though the temps were in the high 50s on that beach walk, the strong winds made it fell quite cold. Nothing like a humid sea breeze, err wind, to chill you to the bone.
