Ogunquit Duet

Ogonquit Maine 2009 Na'ama Yehuda

“Ogunquit Duet”

 

I took this photo in Ogunquit, Maine, during the summer of 2009, as hurricane “Danny” rolled in. Air and water mixed into a mist of gray, as the ocean roiled closer and closer to the buildings and the clouds kissed the waves.

The beach was deserted other than for some miserable looking seagulls who huddled as near the building as they could … and the brave soul who attempted a stroll against the edge of the storm … pushing forward with the umbrella not as rain shield but as barrier against the driving wind.

A moment after I took this photo, the tension broke as a gust whipped the umbrella up and over this person’s head, almost turning them into a kite. A dance ensued: The human tried to turn the umbrella sufficiently into the wind so they could close it; the wind buffeted each duck and weave maneuver with rain, wet sand, and foamy mist.

“Danny” won.

    • Thank you! Indeed it was magnificent. The water reached to the buildings. The world was wild and beautiful and thankfully not actually dangerous in that locale at the time, though nature certainly can be.
