I'm definitely not a person who is prone to anxiousness. Decidedly the opposite, I think. But if there's one thing that gets me every time, it's the wind. I don't mind a gentle breeze, or even the odd gust or two, but when it gets like it is today, you're gosh-darned-tootin' I get anxious. We've had really strong gales all day, although I've been at work and haven't been aware of them. According to Tim, we even had a power-cut for a couple of hours this afternoon!
Now however, I'm home and the noise in the house is just horrendous and yes, I'm anxious. Anxious that the roof will come off, that the windows will blow in, that the steading doors will become detached from their hinges and end up smashing into Tim's car ....... you name it, I'm anxious about it!
So it was with great trepidation that I wrapped up warmly and went into the garden to try to photograph the wind. This is the result ........
I only took this one shot, because as soon as I set foot outside, the hailstones started to batter down. My poor ears were pinged by quite a few and my camera just didn't want to know. I think the hailstones were confusing it!
So is it just me, or can anyone else see the strangeness of this shot?
It appears that the trees are blowing from right to left (which is correct, by the way), but the hailstones seem to be blowing from left to right. Decidedly odd.
Now I'd like to say a HUGE 'thank you' to Mommaba for the "Amazing Blogger" award! I'm not so sure I deserve it, but I'm thrilled all the same!
Tim's been doing his Nigella impression whilst I was at work and came up with this masterpiece!!
