The City Hall in the rain

By January 17, 2015Gothenburg, Long Exposure, Sweden

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.
