In the Pouring Rain

During an afternoon Columbia Gorge shoot, we had a deluge. This was taken through the windshield with sheets of water flowing down. (You didn't see me out there!!) Ah yes, Silly Tuesday. (PS - the waterfalls are behind us.)

A great shot for this silly day. Some people are dedicated to photography, others are just silly.

Yvonne S. from Tilburg, Netherlands

O my dear!! It's raining cats and dogs!

19 May 2009 1:39pm

@Yvonne S.: Great comment.

Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld (Old Pembroke Dock boy,Wales), Germany

How we suffer for our art,no-one will ever know(well,now they will)

19 May 2009 2:08pm

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Right.

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

C'est différent mais c'est intéressant... rien n'arrête un vrai passionné de photo, pas même la pluie qui tombe...

19 May 2009 2:31pm

@Evelyne Dubos: This is "Silly Tuesday", Evelyne.

Don from spokane, United States

The pouring rain adds the vagueness that makes this a fine abstract. It will also remind you how it can rain in the gorge! :-)

19 May 2009 3:26pm

@Don: But it mainly reminds me of how silly we can sometimes be when it comes to our passion.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Yikes, is that a person out there, with a long lens????? Hope the camera was waterproof!!!

19 May 2009 3:33pm

@Susan: She was under the tailgate of the wagon, but it was still wet and crazy.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A hardcore photographer!

19 May 2009 4:42pm

@Steve Rice: You bet, but not Jack!!

Richard_Irwin from Belper, United Kingdom

The rain on the glass created a nice effect, I think staying inside was the sensible option.

19 May 2009 5:43pm

@Richard_Irwin: You bet! (And of course we photographers are always sensible. Actually I will put myself in a very precarious position where I could kill myself, but I won't risk getting my camera soaked!)

Magda from Vancouver, Canada

LOL Original! I see you are not as crazy as some of the photographers out there! ha ha ha

19 May 2009 5:55pm

@Magda: That's debatable!! (Actually she was one of the most hardcore photographers that I have seen in some time.)

ordinaryimages from Kentucky Bluegrass, United States

Now that's the kind of dedication I'm talking about : ] best...jerry

19 May 2009 6:42pm

@ordinaryimages: And I do indeed love her dedication, but not enough to get out there in that storm with her!

zOOm from Paris, France

It's not rain, it's a real shower !
Is your lens waterproof ? ;-)

19 May 2009 6:56pm

@zOOm: Hell no; that's why I'm in the car!

k@ from Paristanbul*, France

And the pouring green !!! Strong effect, my dear and your colors are as wonderful as great B&W !

19 May 2009 7:14pm

@k@: Thank you. I do better if I work more like a rifle than a shotgun. And I have a strong desire to get good at B&W conversions. Throughout our house, there are lots of color photographs on the walls, but in my office, I am surrounded with nothing but B&W; maybe it helps me with the delusion that I am an artist :) (Paristanbul - now that's a lot of "bul"!)

Craig from Vacaville, California, United States

Now that is dedication!

19 May 2009 7:15pm

@Craig: Yep; sure ain't me out there in that storm!!

Yvon from Orleans, France

hard is the live for the photograph

19 May 2009 8:06pm

@Yvon: Thanks, Yvon; it fell in my lap!

@PD: Thanks.

Gary Hart from California, United States

There's nothing quite like shooting in the rain, is there? The fair weather photographers just don't know what they're missing....

I thought I was the only one who shot photos like that! Great capture and now I don't feel all alone!

@Scott Schilling: Silly Tuesday causes people to look for strange opportunities. I have a Silly Tuesday folder for these shots.
