Day 345 - A day without rain
Only in my dreams. Our day started out with a torrential down pour and lightened up to a steady drench.
On our way home this afternoon we drove by the wetlands and a full bush of rosehips begged me to come back.
I didn't think it was raining that hard, I ran home grabbed my macro and headed back. The wind was starting to pick up and by the time I walked over to the bush, it was raining pretty hard. Really no time to set up the tripod, so I took these hand-held.
Hoping for something a little more twinkly, we drove back to a business near downtown that is clearly spirited.
It never did stop raining and was still windy, but I was there and thought I would give this a try anyway.
Even when the skies are gray and dreary by daylight, they still turn that beautiful blue.
Now this is where the story gets interesting. You know the drill about extra cards, batteries...
I get the camera on the tripod, checked my settings and quickly realized I couldn't see a bloody thing. Yes, I had gone out of the house without my glasses. I felt like I was back in the dark ages shooting film.
So now, to the list of don't leave home without it, I will add bifocals.
