Severe weather warnings out all over the country… hazardous conditions everywhere with winds of up to 80+mph anticipated… flooding in coastal areas likely… and more on the way later. Anticipated damage around the £1bn mark!
Getting home after a long night’s work and still infected with some nasty lurgy all I really wanted to do was jump straight into bed.
But its raining outside. And there’s my camera looking pleadingly at me. And I haven’t got any decent “rain shots” yet.
So, a coupla coffees later (heavily laced with honey) resign myself to at least having to do a couple of the obligatory “raindrops on the window” type shots.
Well, the above shot was a bit of a mistake really. Had switched to manual focus cos the auto wasn’t handling it too well, and inadvertently did the clicky business before getting the focus quite right. What a surprise!
But as it happens I quite like the result. I like the way the raindrops running down the windowpane seem to “track” the shape of the tree, and I find that weird effect around the top of the tree to be quite intriguing.
All I’ve gotta do now is persuade myself it was all done deliberately and with prior planning. Easy!
