A hard life

Deze bomen in de duinen tussen het Hoornderslag en Jan Ayeslag werden gevormd door de altijd aanwezige zeewind.

These trees in the dunes between Den Hoorn and Jan Ayeslag were formed by the always present sea wind.

Great photo, you certainly can see which way the winds blows, with the trees.

Like the way you have captured the trees bend in the wind

I like this picture! I wonder what is living and growing in and around those dunes besides those trees.

Nice picture. Is there a lot of wild life in this area?

By the way, I have missed you the last few days.

HUH? "used too much hairspay" or a treeblower?

Have a great weekend?

Nice shot. It makes me remember the experience I had during my first visit to Scheveningen; hard to stand against the wind...
Have a great weekend!

Those are really nice trees bent by the winds. I like them. I remember trees like that along the shores of Lake Michigan in the states. Short, bent and strong and growing in the sand dunes.

The hummingbirds are there, maybe you were early or late or something. There are a total of 12 different ones. All are listed under "Hummingbirds New"

If you had not visited my blog, I don't know if I ever would have found your gem here. This is gorgeous. I can see I will be spending much time here. A powerful example of the power of the wind.

as has already been said - easy to see which way the wind blows here.
