Rain on week one of my self imposed challenge

Today was a dreary day, The drizzle didn’t stop and all colour had been drained from all it touched. The clouds lacked the will to rise to any great height leaving the land shrouded in a grey mist that seemed to envelope everything.

It was always going to be a tough day getting a decent shot of anything so i had to choose my location carefully. Where else would someone go on a wet September’s day….. the beach of course.

I’ve set myself a target of shooting and posting a series of photographs each week. The idea is I will have a target set and a requirement to bring the camera along everywhere I go in case I miss out on an opportunity. I need to get back into photography, hopefully this will do the trick. If nothing comes of it at least I should be better at photography than I am now, and that’s not a bad outcome after all.

I realised most of us have a camera with us all the time, my phone has an 8MP camera which would have been a top of the range digital camera 10 years ago, and just look at the quality of the work that was being produced back then. My Nikon D200 and Samsung compact will be in a camera bag kept in the car.

So no more excuses not to take pictures.

To give you an idea of the weather today, this is not a black and white photo. The levels were changed in photoshop to give it a more moody look but it’s as grey as it was when taken.


I did manage to get a couple of shots taken before I decided to pack it in, I wasn’t risking the camera as the rain got heavier.
