Weather is a constant subject of conversation in the Cleveland, OH area. A few weeks ago we were complaining about the winter that would never end. Now we are complaining about the endless rain that we have been having as we turn to spring. As a photographer, it’s been hard to get motivated enough to go out and shoot in less than desirable weather. Our recent weather has reminded me of a trip to Seattle a few years ago. It really did seem to rain everyday out there, but it did not stop my wife and I from shooting. We were in new and unfamiliar territory that seemed exciting despite the weather. Shots like this one remind me that beautiful, dramatic photos can be taken in any weather and if you want to take unique photos that most people do not take, the rainy, snowy and foggy days are your opportunities to do just that.
Back to reality though, I fully expect to wake up one morning and find a scene like this in my backyard if this rainy weather doesn’t stop soon!
