Wind as Art

Posted by Tall Ships America on April 17, 2012

This video was all over the internets last week and I think it is a a beautiful and fascinating depiction of weather that we only see as full sails, white caps, or ripping hats off our heads.

 

Look at the Gulf Stream curl around Florida and head up the East Coast. I wouldn’t want to meet those equitorial winds in a dark alley, it looks like a wall of wind from Africa to South America. And those wee winds in the Pacific, they seem so earnest… until they hit Cape of Good Hope and Cape Horn and then batten down the hatches.
