For the most part I’m a fan of rain. We have had a dry spring and summer and can really use the stuff. But does it have to pick the times and/or days I plan to do some nature photography?! I’m not against getting a little wet in the procuess of taking some photos. However, I’m not too fond of lightning. There in lies my primary concern. Paddle in the rain… no biggie. Hike in a shower… I’m good with that. Be out on the water in a kayak with lightning flashing… ummm no thank you. So you’ll excuse me if I get a little caustious when I look at the forecast and see 60% chance of thunderstorms. Oh well, I’ll play it by ear and see what happens the next day or two.
With that all said, and my planned photo outing foiled by the rain, here’s a shot from the vacant lot next door taken the other day.
