On those windy days, when the gales just won't let up, make it work for you.

Interested in purchasing prints of my photographs?

My wife Karen also has a photoblog at Open Door.

Clever and creative use of shutter speed, Jason. A fine example of how to go with the flow and make best use of the conditions.

I love this, it's very nice. Sometimes it's interesting to play with the aperture or shutter speed, it gives beautiful pictures, I love this photo.

Absolutely, Jason : and a fine artistic result because of it. Photographic proof that wind is not invisible... not when the effects of it are so evident !

Ryan Hammond from Tucson, United States

The movement of the flowers really works here and gives you a sense of the wind that was present. Almost has that paint quality to it.

Francesca from Austin, United States

I like the blurriness of this combined with the fact that they're indian "paintbrushes". Makes it seem more like a painting.
