Why Carry Your Camera With You In The Rain?
It can be tempting to leave your camera home when you are out and about in the rain.We invest a lot of money when it comes to the cameras that we purchase. So why risk them in bad weather? The answer is very simple. The bad weather often provides us with some of the most unexpected and wonderful images.
Winter is a favourite time for me to have my camera with me at all times as you just never know nor can we predict at times how dramatic the unexpected can be. The images in this blog were all unexpected. Travelling along in the car and then, pop, there it was. Car stops, jump out and capture an image that only lasts a very short time.
This pic went against past experiences as this rainbow lasted for approximately a minute which is a long time in rainbow world.
In 2 out of the 3 pics, the rain had just stopped and the rest is history.There have been times when I have got the camera wet and it was worth getting wet at the time.The last picture I did get wet along with the camera and it was very cold but the end result was worth getting a little wet.
Many don’t like the cold weather and most would prefer the warmer months. All seasons will give you amazing pictures but winter, bad weather will always give you something that is so unpredictable and so rewarding.It comes with a cost of being out in the cold weather. You can always get warmly dressed with rain protective gear.
The next time you see storms or rough weather coming your way, hop in the car and go for a drive and see what you come across. Rainbows are usually related to rain and you won’t get that rainbow by staying in doors. Happy clicking in the rain:)
