Wet, rainy Fall mornings are not uncommon this time of year in the Pacific Northwest, this morning was no exception. As the rain came down, I decided to head out anyway, knowing that this type of weather can often times lead to great atmospherics like fog, and misty conditions which can create nice imagery.
When I arrived at my location, it was raining very hard! I threw on my rain gear, and made my way out to the middle of this creek to capture the image below. I was doing everything I could to try and keep my camera dry. I had a rain sleeve on the camera, was leaning over the camera to dampen the effects of the downpour on my lens, all the while composing and creating this shot. I quickly packed my gear up after I took this shot, and spent the rest of the morning scouting some great new locations for another day. Very excited about these new spots!
Anyway, I obviously decided to process this shot in Black and White (I rarely do creek scenes in B&W), as I really like the end look I achieved with this particular image. Hope you enjoy!!
