Baltimore, West Cork. In The Rain

It was one of those days. West Cork (Ireland) is a beautiful place but in the rain it can look pretty miserable.

After a 2 hour drive I could see the skies darkening above me and as soon as I stepped out of the car the heavens opened, and it stayed that way for the rest of the day. I ended up spending most of the day sitting in the car watching for any break in the clouds. None came.

After driving around the coastline for about an hour I found an old house from the time of the Irish famine. I rushed out a few shots of it covering the camera the whole time. Unfortunately the Fuji XE-1 isn’t weather sealed which is making me think whether it’s the right camera for me. I’m very happy with the quality but if it can’t be out in the rain then I’ll probably end up killing it soon.

Having cropped out the flat grey sky I managed to salvage this thanks to a bit of photoshopping.
