Tower Squall by mikebov

Waiting outside HMS Belfast, we were hit by a sudden squall.

I think I was the only one enjoying the weather

    Great shot, Mike. So, how did you avoid raindrops on the lens? ;-)

  • I was hiding under a tree to get focus set up , then quickly stepped out into the open, took the photo and then spent a couple minutes drying it off.
    Worth the effort ( and the soaking)

    An Interesting shot of my favourite bridge Mike. We took a narrow boat under

    there in 2007, on a day just like that. Actually it rained for eleven hours and I
    was on the tiller !!

  • Aah the fun of boating.
    I was rather pleased with the conditions in that I didn’t want a standard tourist shot of the bridge

    The rain transformed this view adding so much more interest to the walkway.

    wonderful mike

  • Thanks Steve
    This shot has convinced me to do a b&w calender this year.
    This would be good for April or November

    Excellent capture Mike, I forget it was raining quite hard yesterday…

  • The line between Haywards Heath & Wivelsfield was flooded for a while
    delaying our journey home.
    Went down to Seaford in the evening they hadn’t had any rain

    I enjoy extreme weather.

    Thank you for adding this to our new group ‘Lumix Lovers.’ It makes a great addition to the group. You have captured that famous English rain beautifully Mike.

  • Thanks Walks
    It was worth the soaking
    I was pleased to get something different from a sunny tourist shot

    Great shot! I’m thinking one of those umbrellas that fasten onto the shoulders (keeping your hands free) might be handy for photographers – but I never see them any more…

  • A wetsuit & waterproof camera might be easier…lol
