Taken in Palm Springs, California. Brief weekend vacation for my wife's birthday. Day 1 was interrupted by an abrupt wind storm with gusts reported up to 90mph.

Regarding the wall. I wanted an anchored frame in the foreground to aide in presenting the wind.

Too funny, I actually thought they were some sort of chimneys or something like that and did not think they were trees. Amazing, and good timing.

The wall at the left edge detracts from the composition.

I liked how the trees here look like little smoke stacks.

Wow. the trees look like smokestacks for some bizzarre underground factory complex. Excellent job of turning something that is normally an inconvenience into an assett, the day must have been quite windy! In normal circumstances, I would be upset with the result, but as far as the subject goes this is disturbingly appropriate and I love the juxtoposition between the empty yet well-organized pool deck, the "stacks," and the rugged mountains.

What a cool effect! Such a creative use of a ND filter, I find myself sitting and studying this photo.

Those trees are amazing, like little twisters dancing to some leafy tune.
