Wind III

This challenge is specifically intended to be about "wind" like a breeze that blows, not about alternate meanings of wind like "wind the clock" or anything else. Your task is to try to capture this invisible but always-present phenomenon.

Wind II October 23, 2006
Wind December 8, 2004

We are having a very windy day. I was out in position before sunrise. The snow was blowing so hard, I couldn't see anything. But, I have 6 days left.

During the voting phase, I will comment on every image. My comment will be in the form of constructive criticism.

We're supposed to get 60mph winds tonight. But it will be dark, and raining, so I think I'll pass. LOL!

Sorry for the weather. If you are completely overcast, you may indeed be in the dark. However, there will be a 74% waning gibbous moon rising about 10:30pm and setting about 9:44am (check your local times). Might be enough light to be creative with clouds, rain, snow, smoke, waves, etc.

Likewise. Though ours may last into morning. We'll see...

Farts have been clocked as fast as 10 feet/second. Does that count towards a breeze that blows?

Yes as long as you show it knocking something over or blowing someones hair back.:)

An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future. This map shows you the delicate tracery of wind flowing over the US.

If anyone has Europe, Asia, or any other part of the world, please post.

Would love to see a Buster Keaton-esque shot of someone winding a clock tower in a wind storm!

Anyone who enters an ass blast shot will get no lower that a 7 from me.

The challenge is clearly and specifically about wind caused by nature, not the "wind" passed by juveniles. The gutter comments belong somewhere else. Maybe nygold and venser should communicate amongst themselves via PM. Please stay on the topic. Maybe a SC member can help eliminate the rude, crude behavior.

Flatulence is defined in the medical literature as "flatus expelled through the anus" or the "quality or state of being flatulent", which is defined in turn as "marked by or affected with gases generated in the intestine or stomach; likely to cause digestive flatulence." The root of these words is from the Latin flatus - "a blowing, a breaking wind".

The challenge description specifically excludes all but the breeze that blows. Go ahead and suggest a different challenge for your flatulence... and the flatulence of others who can only think like juvenile delinquents. Please stay on topic.

Both the noise and odor associated with flatus leaving the anus can be sources of embarrassment or comedy in many cultures.

I'm guessing your the type that gets embarrassed.

I can assure you the gas coming out of my ass is caused by nature. Last I checked I don't have a leaf blower tucked up there.

Definitely won't be voting on this one. Smelly feet were enough for me.

I'm embarrassed by your grammatical/punctuation/spelling error. But, otherwise, I am not easily embarrassed by rude, crude behavior. It's just that your comments are off topic.

Ask Venser. He's a self-proclaimed genius.

There's nothing rude about anything nygold or myself brought up.
You don't like the fact farting meets the challenge, fine, but that doesn't make it rude. I fully plan on taking a shot of this act of nature somehow. Just have to think of a humourous scenario. As a voter, give me a 1 if you don't like it, my feelings won't be hurt. In the end, as long as someone laughs at my entry, I've succeeded.

Since you exclude derived sources of wind, it will break up the monotonicity of looking at trees blowing in landscapes and waves on the sea.

I don't exclude other "wind" definitions. The challenge description clearly limits this challenge to the breeze that blows. That is not from any human. Read the description and help your buddy with his writing precision.

Alternative definitions of "wind" are specifically excluded to prevent the kind of bullshit you are spreading.

You mentioned the source needs to be caused by nature earlier in the thread, now it doesn't. Which is it?

The challenge limits wind to the breeze that blows, apparently not from any human. I don't read that anywhere in the original description. Is that something you added afterwards? Help me out, I'd hate to miss something obvious.

The alternate definitions you're excluding are homographs of the word wind.

Sorry, Richard. Just reacting to the sadness of this situation. I thought this site was about photography, not silly, juvenile tricks.

It's okay, Margaret. I've asked for moderators to help with the punks who can't read, write nor understand a simple challenge description. Website disruption and taunting are violations of forum rules. No help from the direction of SC moderators, yet.
