February Ocean Views

Saturday we took a short trip to visit our twin fork to the south.  It was a blustery, cold day with little relief from the steely overcast.  The largely unpeopled beach was a simple canvas.  Moderate waves rolled in as sand blasted through the air.  I stepped out of the jeep and braved a few telephoto shots.  Almost none were usable as the camera was difficult to steady in the buffeting gusts.  I had more success shooting long distance from inside the jeep with the camera resting on the top edge of a halfway rolled down window, what I refer to as "car hunting".  Even then we were rocking and only stabilization saved a few photos.
