How can I photograph the wind you ask? Wind is invisible, you possibly can solely really feel it when it touches you and you can see it when it touches the grass, the trees, the water and the clouds. It makes the mills go round and it enables the birds to fly. Typically it roars when wind turns into a storm. Folks as well as animals use the wind for transportation and folks use the wind to generate electricity and plenty of extra issues.

Wind may be stunning and wind could be terrible when it turns into a hurricane or twister. We all know how destructive the wind can be. We don't have hurricanes and tornados in my nation however we do have small whirlwinds now and again.

I'm not an expert photographer and that i do not know much concerning the technical stuff like shutterspeed and aperture, but that does not stop me from catching nature's beauty with my digital camera. Highlighting Guidelines for the Perfect Glow was an artist and he taught me to look past the plain and learn how to make compositions.

In this artical I want to indicate you how straightforward it actually is to photograph the wind, meaning the results of the wind.

Clouds within the Wind

I like the Wind and The place I Live There's Wind Most of the time.
My nation (the Netherlands) is somewhat flat and the place I live I can look straight to the horizon within the front of our old farmhouse. We see 1/three of land and 2/3 of sky, the proper photographic composing rule. Some may think that the sky is dull, however it's removed from dull. It's changing color and kind each minute of the day. The wind provides to these ever changing kinds in nature.

Do you remember the occasions whenever you lied down within the grass trying as much as the sky and tried to discover animals or different known types within the clouds?

The photographs of the clouds under are all taken in front of my house.

Wind Bending Timber

The ability of the wind is just incredibly strong. In my area which is near the North Sea there's wind most of the time and very often it comes as a storm from the South West or the North West. Lots of the nation roads are bordered with timber like Canadian poplars, elms and buttonballs. They catch plenty of wind and rising up they might develop crooked as you'll be able to see in the photos below.

I Asked the Wind

I asked the wind
"What makes you change your temper so fast"
He hesitated, but answered me ultimately:

I can be gentle,
like a lover's velvet kiss,
after i contact lips a moment lengthy.
I could be teasing,
once i let hair tickle your nose,
or good,
when in empty bottles, I sing my song.

I journey around the globe,

which is able to solely take a day.
I'm generally heat,
in other moments chilly.
I either breeze a beach in solar,
or rage by means of tree crowns bold.

However I observed that people are arduous to please,
which method I blow, I never seem to get it right.
So I made up my thoughts, long time in the past
and I will blow as I see match.
Be it a storm for days,
or a comfortable breeze only for the night.

You Cannot Management the Wind, but You should use the Wind to Your individual Benefit

Generally we do not just like the wind, especially when it is turning into a raging storm. Everyone knows concerning the devastating tornadoes, no want to show you pictures of these, everyone knows what they will do and you will discover them on the web all over the place. Nonetheless there are so many different issues we depend for on the wind and with out wind they can not carry out. I'm speaking about sailing boats, windmills, gliding airplanes, all birds, hold gliders, wind surfers, kites and I'm positive I am forgetting some.

People Experience the Wind

Do You like the Wind?

Yes, as much as a sure point

Nah, I hate Wind

Wind causes a lot harm

Riding the Wind in the Flawed Manner

It's not What You Think It is

It looks fairly actual, doesn't it? However no, it's not what you suppose it's, or is it?, I can assure you, no person acquired harm. On the seashore in Zandvoort there's this beach house restaurant and next to it they have put this little airplane on poles. Because the seashore is a lot lower than the street above, it just seems just like the airplane crashed into the dunes. I took this picture from a certain angle.

Animals Use the Wind

Even the spiders are profiting from the wind to get from one place to the opposite as you possibly can see in the picture above. They simply spin an extended thread after which they drift on the wind till they hit another spot and that may be quite a distance sometimes. Spiders travel and not using a plan so to talk, they settle the place the wind will take them.

Spiders use the wind to transport themselves

The Fascination of Flying by Manpower

There was this wealthy English industrialist Henry Kremer who was fairly in for adventures and challenges. In 1959 he established a prize for the primary one who might fly a determine eight over a sure distance in a human powered airplane.

It was aircraft designer Paul MacCready who, after 20 years of study and trials, succeeded to meet that problem by flying the certain distance (together with a turn) with a man powered airplane, which he had named the Gossamer Condor.

This huge success passed off on August 23, 1977 and that is why August 23 was declared Ride the Wind Day. The prize was about 50.000 pounds ($85.000). Two years later in 1979 this Paul MacCready received the Kremer Prize again, by crossing the Channel between England and France in another human powered airplane which he referred to as the Gossamer Albatross.

The Gossamer Condor is now displayed within the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum and the Gossamer AlbatrossII (the backup aircraft) is displayed in the Museum of Flight in Seattle.

The Flight of the Gossamer Condor has been filmed by Ben Shedd and his crew from begin to finish.

The Kremer Prize Challenge Goes On

I wonder How many More Brave Males/Women Will Experience the Wind

The Kremer prize did not finish with the flights of the Gossamer Condor (prize: 50.000 pounds) which flew the first human powered mile long determine eight course and the Gossamer Albatross (prize: 100.000 pounds), the primary human powered airplane which crossed the English Channel.

Since then Highlighting Guidelines Glow (20.000 pounds) has been awarded to a design staff of the Massachusetts Institute of Know-how. They flew their MIT Monarch B craft on a triangular 1.5 km (0.Ninety three mi) course below three minutes.

And it isn't over but. Three Kremer Prizes are waiting on their rightful winners (total of 150.000 pounds)

* 26 mile Marathon course in beneath an hour (£50,000),

* Sporting aircraft problem stressing maneuverability (£100,000),

* Native challenge that is restricted to youth groups (under 18 years) in the UK.

So if you feel up to it, take your probability to write Historical past.

When my son was 12 he tried to make a dangle glider-he would love this page, I will should forward it to him!!

Simply lovely, a lovely lens concerning the wind! Windy days will be so peaceful typically..particularly when summer season is turning into fall, or spring is turning into summer season.


Wow, lovely lens! I love your ethos of letting your pictures alone. I think folks overdo the editing thing now and infrequently ruin a wonderfully good photograph which captured the essence the photographer saw in the first place! So good for you!
