Difficult light....

03rd November 2011
The rains are coming! We had about 2cms last night (not all that much considering it rained all night!) but it's a promise that more is on the way.
Rains are a double-edged sword for photographers...the dramatic skies, leaden clouds and lightning strikes are great, as is the clear air that follows a big storm. But the dull grey clouds which stretch from horizon to horizon, and remain in place for days on end are less good! This flat light can make even the best subject hard to capture.
I went out after the rain today, but there was still a lot of cloud around. I didn't even take my camera out until the sun dropped low in the sky and showed through beneath the carpet of clouds. Just in time, I arrived alongside the river just as a ray of nice light hit these two Egyptian Geese.
