This one really shows how much the wind was moving the sand. When I faced into the wind my face was sand blasted, so I wasn't game to point my camera in that direction.

That last comment was from me, Aussie. Don't even ask!
That's a huge swell. Great capture, Aussie.
I can see that you would be sandblasted...Their hoods show just how blustery that wind is. I can feel that sand on my skin.... Excellent. Love the B & W
Wow ! This a wonderful picture : Thumbs up !!
Just looking at this makes me want to go and put a coat on! Great picture.

Excellent shot, Aussie. Works so well in momochrome. All the best, Dave.

An excellent picture any which way I can think of. Gone to my likeys.

That sand can blast, I know even if I have never been in a gale on the beach. Normal strong winds already can hurt.
Very good capture! I like how they are isolated, but standing together.

Great shot - it almost has me shivering as I look at it! For me, it is the figures that make it.

Quality image, really great capture. And I don't blame you about facing into the wind & sand, don't want to ruin the lens front, do you!!
The atmosphere that you have captured is frightening! Wow!
Lovely image, Aussie. Amazing, the force of Nature, isn't it? Good job!
Aussie: Thank you Marcello
Atmospheric shot indeed.
