Daily Practice 296/365

Title: "Gathering wind"
(click on the image to view larger)
Rain has been predicted for the past few days, but hasn't really appeared. The winds blowing through the region have cleared the air just over the water, giving a feeling of the sky lowering. Off in the distance, there's a greenish-gold glowing light just above the Olympic Mountains. We stood on the edge of the point, the gulls flying in front of us at eye level, the stiff breeze in our faces a mix of warm and cold air.

There's a wonderful sense of motion in the clouds, as if we can actually see the wind gathering. There's so much unsettled energy in this beautiful image! Yet you've found form and a moment of balance in it. And I love the way the light pours onto that narrow band of mountains, making them look like a distant land of mystery.
