At Ocean Shores WA, the wind coming off the ocean blows a layer of sand close to the ground. I've tried to capture the motion with this photo. I tried long exposure of 1 second, but it just looked too soft, so lowering the shutter speed to 1/160 has kept some detail. It looks kind of desolate, even thought it's a beach.
Taken about the same time:
This is the sunset at the same location, same day.
