Paradise At The End Of A Stormy Day (Explored at #8 on 3/23/12))

    Newer Older

    For the past several weeks, my normal routine has been very disrupted as not one but several storms have cleared out of our area during the late afternoon hours. This means that instead of heading straight home, I had to drive over to the resort after a long day at work to see if I could get some clouds in the sky during golden hour as these storms clear out. I think I mentioned in an earlier post that California storms are like crack to me, and if a storm looks like it could be clearing out, I have a VERY hard time staying home when I COULD be shooting at one of the parks or South Orange County Beaches. I just read a post this morning from flickr user Neil Kremer who is feeling the same pressure. In a few weeks, the storms will completely disappear for upwards of 6 months. We could easily not see another drop of rain until November. So when these opportunities arise, you will typically find me out there with an umbrella waiting for the storm to break up because who KNOWS when I'll get another chance.

    In the mean time, the forecast for this Sunday calls for an 80 percent chance of rain. Guess where I'll be late Sunday afternoon?

      Oh nice! And I'm like you. I watch the weather reports to keep track of when there might be these nice clouds at dusk. But even then, there's no guarantee Mother Nature will cooperate like she did for this shot.

      Fisheye is perfect here. I completely disagree with that Tom character. You nailed this to the 1000th degree.

      Gorgeous light and color! I'm not a big fan of fisheye shots in general, but I think it works really well here, especially with the curve of the railing.
