During last week I had nothing for this weeks challenge and thought I should look through my archives. On Friday night however, now the weather here in Australia is hotting up and the nights are lighter, I thought on the way home I would stop off at one of my favourite beaches and see what it was like for some photographs. Luckily the tide was just so, neither up or down but just having left a pool of water around several rocks and every now and again feeding it. Perfect!
It was just starting to spit rain but that didn’t deter me, only later did I find a few blurry spots on my photo but easily removed in Lightroom.
I took pictures from several angles with views up and down the coast, the latter I preferred this evening. I was just finishing up when those very light drops of rain turned into gallons all at once, I had to quickly disconnect my camera from the tripod and almost throw it into my bag to keep it dry. My feet were already saturated by the tide but now the rest of my body was completely wet from the rain. On the way to the car I pushed my face up into the rain and just smiled. How satisfying – Friday night, no work for two days and wet as anything but I didn’t have a care in the world for those few moments and it was exhilarating!
And after I got home and looked at my shots I decided it was well worth my wet hair and clothes.
