Well, what do you do when there are two mornings in a row filled with rain? Pick one and go shoot. Yesterday I was supposed to conduct a private lesson in the morning, with a focus on composition of water and landscapes, but got rained out. Today it was rainy when I got up at 5:00am to go to the Susquehanna State Park, but the weather forecast looked better than yesterday, with just occasional chances of thunderstorms and cloudy skies...so we went. When I arrived at the boat ramp at 6:45 the river was shrouded in fog and there were already two boats drifting in the water. So I snapped a couple shots before my client arrived. We worked on some shots of the pier and then moved upstream and made some images of the rocky river bed in the fog. We actually had amazing conditions, fog and overcast made for some very moody shots. After shooting the landscape we moved on to the Herring Run and made some waterfall images. By then it began raining again, but we had a good shoot and good subjects.
I made just a few shots in the morning, but mostly helped with composing images and technical adjustments.
