Sand-blasted

Lyall Bay beach, on a day with weather warnings of up 100km winds for Wellington – normally there’s a metre or so gap under the end of this little pier.  Sand rushed along the be beach in visually fascinating but incredibly scouring swirls, so you may be sure that I kept my back to the wind and took good care that my camera stayed inside my jacket.  Photo with the IR-modified camera, using a UV filter, so this is visible + IR light.

Or, if you prefer, a prettier, closer view processed with a slightly different colour mix for a quite different effect.
