When it gets Windy over the Beach

When it gets Windy over the Beach
Two local girls leaving the windy Tajpur Beach (West Bengal) on their bicycle.
Sea breeze is a common occurrence in coastal places (remember reading sea/land breeze phenomenon in school level geography book?) that makes the beach stay pleasant for us even in a sunny day, unless one is scared to get tanned. Sometimes the offshore wind takes the lead and makes the wind scenario over beach pretty chaotic. Surely, it is fun for a candid photographer to click someone chasing his flying hat but for the rest of the folks it is not that enjoyable. I'm talking of tourists though, as local people including vendors over the beach are quite acclimatized with the windy beach. It's amusing how easily the tea maker can light your cigarette with a single matchstick and hold it strong for half a minute while you gave up struggling with half a dozen of them, all in vain. Unless it culminates into a storm, the wind can not bother coastal people. If you're a photography enthusiast you'll definitely capitalize the windy beachscape. In monsoon days you won't get to capture rich hues of the sky overlooking the sand but when it gets windy over the beach your lens would find enough sources of euphoria.

    1. Thanks a lot Parul... BTW, if you have been to Vizag beaches you'd know that the same moisture laden air in some coastal areas can be claustrophobic too :-D
