This is a photo blog of self expression. All the images I post are self assignments driven by the need for more creativity in my life. This is my escape from the everyday shooting as a professional photographer.
I shot this photo in a steady rain in Cades Cove. I used a large golf umbrell with my camera mounted on my Bogen tripod. I had to shoot several images in order to get the right amount of ripple action that created an interesting pattern. It is also important to get an angle that produced bright spots that shows the circular action of the rain drops. Setting my custom white balance was important because of the cold color balance from a rainy day.
