Blowing a Gale

A storm on the Sea of Cortez, usually “calm waters”, walloped the beach at Puerto Peñasco yesterday with a fierce gale. The sand and salt laden south wind made photographing outside impossible, so I set up my tripod inside our RV, looking directly at the oncoming seas through a salt-encrusted window. I used a slow (1/8 to 1/4 sec) shutter speed to capture a sense of motion in the waves. The RV was shaking non-stop, adding to the challenge. The wind blew for 36-hours straight, and high tides brought the surf close to our RV at the top of the beach. Reminded me of some stormy days in Nova Scotia!
