We've had two days of very strong northwest winds — 20–30 knots with higher gusts. Bodega Head is one of the windiest places on the West Coast. It's a challenge to consider how to represent wind in a photograph. (Of course, there's nothing like feeling the brunt of it in your face, or almost being knocked over by it!) Here are a few photos showing the interplay of wind, waves, and light.
And just when I thought the wind was too strong for a bird to fly into, a Peregrine Falcon comes into view, stroking powerfully upwind.
