Autumn Rain at Great Falls
The weather for this past weekend was split. Saturday was quite rainy and mild ahead of a cold front while the weather behind the front, on Sunday, was sunny and quite cool. Against my better judgment, I decided to shoot Great Falls in the rain on Saturday and not wait for the beautiful weather on Sunday. The idea was to contrast the bright colors of fall foliage against a black and white background of clouds and rain. Besides, this is a weather blog so I try to get out and shoot in all types of weather, not just on nice days.
Keep reading for more views, including a panorama of Great Falls.
It was a bit challenging to photograph with an umbrella over the camera and tripod as the wind swirled rain sideways onto my camera. My camera ended up getting soaked and I only photographed for about 15 minutes, just long enough to be satisfied that I captured a good sample of the rainy scenes at Great Falls. During that short time, I was treated to very interesting scene, a guy going over Great Falls in a kayak. I took a photo sequence, but that will be for the next photo post. Stay tuned...
