Rain, Rain, Rain, and more Rain
Rain, Showers, Thunder, Lightening, Floods, Downpour, Wet, Cold, Grey,
But how did I manage to take a picture of the rain
Well as always its all about the light. You can’t see it but despite this being a very heavy shower there is still some diffused sunlight shining beyond the edge of the shower. This is lighting the rain as it falls.
Then by using a slow shutter speed I have captured the movement of the rain as it falls. The use of the tree as a dark background is also important. Plus I have manually focused on the rain and not the tree.
Finally an umbrella comes in handy.
