I was following a thread in the another topic in the forum over the weekend. It was about getting out in the recent good weather, here in the UK, to take some stock photos. Long story short, someone mentioned it had started to rain on his 'good weather' shoot putting an end to that days fun. That was followed by a comment by someone else, that bad weather was no excuse to put the camera away. 

 

I whole heartedly agree agree with that. I'm not to precious over my equipment and some of my favourite photos, in my small portfolio, have been taken in some awful weather conditions. Here's an example I took of a couple on a beach at. T4 event a few summers ago. It still makes me smile and was printed in The Sun newspaper. I wondered if anyone else felt the same, with some examples of course 😊

It always humoured me that this woman was carrying a "Las Vegas" bag. I had taken shelter because the hailstones were sore on my face

I love bad weather, its one of my favourite things. A couple of pics from me

Really black clouds behind a lovely church at Jokkmokk in Sweden. Yes, I got wet. I wasn't a stock shooter back then so I didn't take pictures of the deluge and everyone running from it (which was a waste of energy as everyone was soaked through in 5 seconds).

The Hyde Park rangers were already standing by ready to chop down this tree. But I got there first and it was on The Sun website. Yay.

Mozambique floods 2000. This was taken some time after the hurricane had passed through and the country was trying to pick the the pieces.

As an aside, after having a quick glance at the discussion about the D850. This was taken with a Minolta X300. Fuji Velvia film.

2 am night time thunderstorm near Positano, Amalfi Coast. So loud I couldn't sleep, so thought I might as well set up the tripod

Thanks! Of course, I was sheltering on the opposite side of the road too.

Main difference is I was in the archway of the Anchor pub, c/w sensible refeshment ....

:D

A few bad weather photos from me if that's ok.

This one below was for live news, on a Bank Holiday I think, where it's typically raining in the UK, yet people still go to the beach . I really thought it would be used, but it wasn't.

Standing in the rain, which got worse as this event went on, and caused my camera to stop working for a few minutes at one point.
