I had lunch today with my writing group at one member’s residence on Prospect Avenue overlooking Lake Michigan. In January I took a photo from the bluff, braving bitterly cold wind without gloves for the few seconds it took to snap the picture.
This afternoon the wind was so stiff that I had trouble standing still in one spot to take this picture of a ship out on the water. I could barely keep my footing—and I had to grip the phone tightly with both hands to make sure the gusts didn’t snatch it right out of my fingers! The wind pelted me with rain and lashed my hair across my face, so I really couldn’t even see whether I’d gotten the photo I wanted until I checked my phone later.
As you can see, that wind out of the north was so strong that I couldn’t even take the picture straight 🙂
