Artist's Description

The locals know easterly winds as beastly easterlys….they reckon they bring dust, pollens, allergies, sand, saltspray and general malaise as a result. And they do….they are sods of things, I’d much rather 100 knot westerlys than a damn beastly…..and being 5 miles out to sea as Stanley is, we get our fair share of both so we know which one is the worst one!
Having said that, once one avoids the spray, one can find lots of interesting goings-on, like these grasses you see, swaying with the wind, and then flattened by a gust. I “saw” this as a mono straight away, so a dash of contrast and shadow livened things up a bit…
Canon 5D II, 17 to 4omm at 20mm, 1/250 at F11, ISO 200, 2 GNDs, and a bull to lean against for fear of falling over from the wind, and if you believe that, you’ll believe anything……
