A Blustery Day [I] | 850nm IR | 24mm.
I must have looked a right sight, standing outside in my dressing-gown and walking boots, camera on the tripod shooting the trees amidst 80mph winds. As the rain came pouring out of the sky, I had managed to bag just a few frames. Currently, thanks to the storm and the many trees that have disrupted power-lines on their way down to the ground, there is no wifi, no electricity or hot water, everything is running off remaining battery power, now – and I daren’t even open my fridge door. As for travel, it can’t happen today. All local roads are blocked by trees. So, I console myself with these captures – in temporary, rural isolation. They’re not great captures but, the best I could get before the heavens really opened. Mad-dash photography… I’ve had better luck!
Wherever you are, if the storms are hitting you, I hope you’re in a safe place. (My next-door neighbour’s shed is already in the opposite field and, I fear it won’t be long before mine joins it!)
That’s all for now; I want to get this posted before my battery runs empty.
