We had a pretty nasty storm here the past day or so (the outer edge of Hurricane Sandy). As the daylight was fading the winds and rain began in earnest I found myself wanting to somehow capture the forces at play. We don’t have waves crashing over a seawall, but the trees were swaying and the rain was horizontal so I hoped I could somehow use those elements in the image – a mixture of the stationary and moving. I can’t say I was thrilled with the results, but they do convey a bit of the power of the storm in our tiny little corner of the world.
