A lot of wind, a dry and strong wind rocking the palm trees again and again. This is what I got by this winter morning in the south of France, somewhere along the Mediterranean coastlines. I’ve fallen in love with the Montpellier area and its enormous ponds. Usually very calm and offering a nice reflection on their surfaces, this morning the wind was strong and the water was moving a lot, so I had to work a long exposure to get a clean result. I also had the pleasure to enjoy the seagulls flying all around me, and then decided to catch some of them for the picture, the first sun beams hitting their wings.
Take a seat, breathe deeply and let your imagination go. Imagine the sounds of the waves crashing against the rocks, the song of some seagulls resonating from the steep cliffs, the smell of the sea salt brought to you by the wind. Imagine a fresh breeze stroking your cheeks and the thin sand running on your feet. Look up, admire the clouds moving, and feel the warmth of the sun on your skin.
