Dodging the inevitable summer showers is pretty much part of the British way of life.
The picnic in the park at How Hill on the Norfolk Broads was sadly no exception! With families coming to enjoy the free activities and the nature trails around the site, the rain did manage to hold off for a couple of hours, enabling me to meet my brief and capture images of families outside having fun!
The rather dodgy weather did have the benefit of providing some rather awesome cloud for a couple quick landscape pictures.
The annoying thing was that I wasn’t even ready..I was busy shooting a couple of images of a young couple on a boat, turned around to be met with a short burst of sun striking the sails of a boat with the most stirring storm clouds in the background. No filters, tripod etc to hand, so I shot a few frames very quickly, grabbing what I could. As quick as the dramtic burst of sunlight appeared, it disappeared.
Moments later I was running for shelter as the clouds opened up and released a torrent of rain.
