Going out as it get’s dark, especially in the rain can be very rewarding. This time however, even thou I managed to get some shots it was more of a struggle, trying to keep the rain away from my lens.
I had to wipe it off…take a couple of frames, and wipe it off again. But after some time that didn’t really do any good. Here are a few pictures from one of those rainy, dark evenings.
I had fun trying to avoid the rain and shooting the City hall with some “Christmas lights”.
I managed to get a few shots before my gear got wet. The weather “sealing” on my Canon 7D hasn’t failed me yet. – I think I need to work a little more on these when I have the time, that little white square disturbs me.
I like shooting in the rain but sometimes it’s really hard to hold on the umbrella and keep the rain away from the camera. I think I should invest in some rain-gear.
This is one of the last shots I took, and as you can see I could no longer keep the rain away from my lens. It was time to call it a day and go for a coffee and try to dry my gear. The above shot is a Jpeg straight out of the camera, just straightened it a little, nothing else.
Shot with a Canon 7D and my trusted 24-105 lens, at about 30 sec F11 and ISO 100
