having re-vitalized the rubber boots was the first step for enjoying the rain, and having learned to trust the weather sealing of the camera is the second and even more important one. usually i am quite concerned about my gear and don’t want to take a risk, but taking no photos at all because of the rain is not an option. the moss on the trees in the weissbach canyon really seemed to ask to be photographed.
and so did the ‘waldgeissbart’ (aruncus dioicus). unfortunately the compositions showing white out-of-focus dots of the white blossoms in the background of a sharp one didn’t work as expected. but according to the weather forecast i will have the opportunity to re-do this subject.
