2015—Wild Flowers In The Rain

Mady and I went for a late afternoon walk and I forgot to check the weather forecast which, at this time of year and given the drought conditions, should have been clear and warm. Mady and I were caught in a thunderstorm as we walked at Miner’s Ravine but not before I took some shots of wildflowers. I took my D7100 and my 18-200mm lens because I didn’t want to be burdened with a huge lens and a heavy camera with Mady tugging at her leash. While we waited out the worst of the storm under an over crossing with a couple of cyclists, I took some shots of raindrops on the creek. When it didn’t look like the rain was going to let up and I realized that I had an unused poop bag, I covered the camera with the bag and Mady and I walked the half mile back to the car. When we got home, it was dry but the thunderstorm arrived about an hour after our return.
