Dust Bowl

As Lyle is beginning to believe is permanently bathed in sunshine, I thought I would take you back a week or so to the period of strong winds which we had - I tried my level best to trash a 24-85mm Nikor  attempting to take a dust bowl live (silly me). Realising I was loosing out badly to nature I headed to the field next door and got this. It doesn't quiet help you appreciate the weather condition's. However if you look across the the image there are clues everywhere. Perhaps there is a bit too much going on - either way we needed to move away from Torridon just briefly.

  1. You are a brave soul attacking a dust bowl! Anything for the photo – I’m impressed. As for your sunshine – I checked your weather report and you certainly don’t seem to get much of it. By the way I seem to have missed a few of your posts since WordPress suddenly tells me I’m no longer following you. Odd. You’re the second one to fall off like that.

    1. Lyle don’t worry about it – I have missed loads of posts by people but I catch up eventually – probably one of the reasons I enjoy the blogging – nobody gets narked. Regarding the dust bowl – foolish is a better choice of words tbh. I had already lost a lens to a sandstorm on the beach and failed to learn my lesson

  2. Un travail spectaculaire sur ces photographies qui font rรชver, je viens de parcourir votre site c’est fabuleux

      1. That happens to me so often. Someone once said…”turn around when you’re out taking a photo because a lot of times you end up with something completely different”. Have a great day ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. a first Lee that is good – we tend to get this level of sustained wind for a couple of weeks in the Spring. Beyond that its just a odd day here and there.

    1. the tracks attracted me straight away if I could have captured the hooly that was taking place in the next door field – I would have been happy but it would probably have cost me the lens but I simply couldn’t see anything
