Just in time

I recently attended a conference in Stockholm. It's the first time I've been to Sweden (with the exception of passing through Arlanda Airport, which doesn't really count), so I had a nice time exploring a very small part of the city when I wasn't in sessions.

 

This was from the first morning I was there. I wasn't expecting any good light, as the forecast was mostly cloudy with light rain all day. I could deal with mostly cloudy, as I was planning on photographing some of the wonderful narrow roadways in Old Town and didn't really want harsh shadows. So I was a little slower getting ready than I would have been to catch the sunrise.

 

When I walked out of my hotel, the sky was beginning to pick up some color. Of course a great sky would happen when I wasn't planning to photograph it! I walked quickly and got to this view just as the color peaked.

 

I spent another hour or so wandering around Old Town, then returned to my hotel to get ready to go to the conference. When I walked downstairs for breakfast, a light, steady rain was falling. How was that for timing?
