    That is dedication. LOL. Great composition and capture, Jack. The winds has died down some here so that is good. Don't work to hard.

That is one dedicated individual. I did stuff like that when I was in the Army. You can't pay me to do it now.

And what about the photographer here, he is out there pushing against the storm there is another case of dedication. Way to go Jack.

I agree with you on the title Jack.
I'm in sub-tropics with the fireplace blazing. Thanks for the info, I was wondering what the slight blur was. Great light and color!

Terrific shot, Jack!

I do have flowers, but not many at the moment, because it's so hot. I live in a bush setting, so there are birds all around.

Thanks for the comments glad you all enjoyed the shot.
Must say this guy had to be miserable as the blowing sand was VERY VERY NASTY.
I had the camera wrapped in heavy plastic & tried to keep the lens away from the wind all the time.

At a glance, it seems like a nice sunny beach, but after reading your caption, I realized how cold it is. Brrrr, I wouldn't go out to the beach with that temperature. Nevertheless, the lighting in this image is very nice and the lone runner adds emotion to it. Keep shooting Jack!!
