When we arrived, the wind was blowing like crazy. Check the blowing sand out in the lower right.

An interesting contrast to see the surf and the blowing sand in the same shot. The one person adds much to the image too. Very successful shot.

A beautiful shot of the surf and sandstorm. That's better than driving rain, I guess. ;-)

What an eye-catching capture of the blowing sand! It first looked like smoldering smoke. That outcropping of stone on the far right seems to take on a facial expression.
