Wind on the Water

One of the challenges I give myself is trying to explain the action of wind with a photograph. It’s not very often that I feel I have been able to capture the right effect. Here is an example of a chinook wind blowing over the Bow River in Calgary. This one I feel works nicely. I did need to play with a few different lengths of exposure and wait for a fairly strong gust of wind to catch just the right amount of movement.
