The forecast was pretty bleak this morning but I decided to risk it with the boy and head out to Gopher Dunes Dirt Track in the hopes that the weather would be clear by the time we got there. No such luck. What started as a light drizzle turned into a downpour within minutes and for once I was not prepared for it. I did manage to fashion a temporary rain cover for the camera out of a Henry’s bag so the 7D was safe but the Colin and I were getting soaked.
Still, water and sand makes for some good shots as the youngsters fight their way through it and though I only got off eighty five exposures (to my usual two thousand) I still got some good work in. You can see in the later shots how hard the rain is coming down.
This’ll be the last race I can make until the end of August. Hopefully the next one will be drier but I’m going to invest in a rain cover for the camera, just in case. Hope you enjoyed the shots.
