Mountain heather, wet weather


Mountain heather, wet weather

Following on from the last image inside the bothy on the fell side….

It’s not often you actually want iclement wet weather on a shoot, infact I think this is the only time I have welcomed it, ever. But for what I wanted it was pretty much perfect, I’d like to shoot this in different conditions too, but to show a weather shelter doing it’s job ideally it needs to be during adverse weather conditions, no amazing golden light today, just rainclouds, fog, rain, and plenty of it…

The problem with this is though unless it actually stops at some point it’s more or less impossible to shoot in…. unless you’re inside, like the last image.

The other photographer from Durham had gone out in the rain and got a shot and had gone back down the hill, the sky had been really featuresless though so I decided to wait it out up here for a bit to see if there was a bit more drama to be had before going out and setting up.

Not long afterwards although it was still raining there were a few breaks in the clouds and the mountains to the rear became visible once more, just remained a case of getting set up and keep wiping the lens to make sure there was a nice sharp image with no rain spots on it, thankfully didn’t take too long as no filters needed to be added on a day like this.

We wondered wether to wait around a while longer but to honest I was happy with the image and probably wouldn’t get anything better so we headed down, great that we did and it just got worse and worse visibility wise, and would actually rain non stop for the next 20 hours… guess I should be careful what I wish for …
