Last Sunday, as I set out on my bike ride, a very strong wind was blowing from 
the south-west. I had elected to go south to the beaches south of Alicante, so 
it meant that the first half of my 80 km ride were against the 
wind—character-building to say the least (the route is circular, so I did not 
have tailwind all the way home afterwards, sometimes strong side wind which 
always makes cycling more interesting ;-)).

In any event, it was not particularly cold, somewhere between 15 and 20C,  but 
the wind kept people away from the beaches. I first stopped at Urbanova, a 
beach about 17 km south of where I live, close to my office.

From a photographic point of view to photograph wind is harder than to 
photograph, say, rain. Here is one attempt:

The only person I saw at Urbanova:
(In the distance are some ships and what appears to be a giant UFO, although it 
could be the island of Tabarca)

At the southern-most point of my route, Santa Pola, the beach was also 
deserted, with a man looking for coins with his metal detector the only human 

November is probably the quietest month around here. In December things pick up 
again, first with the long weekend at the beginning of the month (December 6th 
is Spain’s Constitution Day, and December 8th is the Feast of the Immaculate 
Conception, so this year many people have a 5-day weekend), and then of course 
Christmas and New Year, when many tourists come here, especially people from 
Madrid who have their vacation homes on the coast.
