I love storms, and I have to admit I’ve been a teensy bit jealous of late of some of the fabulous thunderstorms others around the country have witnessed – though I hasten to add that I understand sometimes storms do horrible things to property and to people.
Today is apparently our turn, though as yet I’ve only heard two rolls of thunder, so not sure we’re going to have anything significant. We shall see. In the meantime, though, I raced up to the beach for a quick walk, camera in hand. I wasn’t disappointed.
This was the view from the carpark.
I wish cameras could capture scents, because the smell of these wet dunes was almost as amazing as the looming clouds.
I couldn’t wait to get down all those stairs (can you spot the photobombing dragonfly in this photo?)
and the view on the beach was as awesome as I expected.
My feet were pretty happy to test the water – and I kind of wished I’d worn my bathers, because the water was perfect for a dip.
But instead I put the camera away for a while and just walked, and breathed and smiled. Sometimes you don’t need a camera to record the awesomeness of an experience.
But, walk over, I couldn’t resist one more shot – which turned into two more. Because I couldn’t help capturing the difference between two angles standing in the one spot. Looking along the beach:
And then, looking up to see a patch of blue.
As I write, the skies are growing darker. Wonder if there’s any patches of blue left?
