rainy day fun
During Presidents Day weekend I shot an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament in San Diego. The last day of the tournament was moved to San Bernardino due to rain and field closures in SD. I came prepared with water-proof pants, jackets, rain cover for my 70-200mm, rain cover for my 400mm, gloves, etc.
I had shot in rain before but nothing had prepared me for this. It rained all day, from the moment I woke up till I got back home from shooting. It didn’t just rain, it poured. It was cold and wet. In between each game I went back to my car and turned the heat on full blast for about 10 minutes just so I could feel my fingers again.
It was a three day tournament, and I got a lot of good photos on each day. But its not everyday, I shoot in such extreme conditions. I know a lot of photographers shoot in conditions like this or worse everyday, but in Orange County its pretty rare.
Here are some of the shots from the rainy day.
