The Rain Cave

A while back I decided to buy a rain jacket for my camera off of Amazon. (Always a risk when you don’t know the product, but it seemed like a good idea.) It’s got a plastic rod that clicks into the flash slot on top of the camera, with a curve around the lens, and then the plastic has little velcro patches to hold it down. It’s a bit cumbersome to use, but definitely beats getting your camera soaking wet. I haven’t had too many occasions to use it before, but I’m a firm believer that bad weather makes for good photos so I was glad to have it with me.

This shot was taken at “Paradise Beach” just North of Christmas, Michigan. The view is looking East along the shore from where the dirt road ends at the camp site. I was using my telephoto lens partially because it fits better with the plastic rain protector thingy attached, but also so I could get closer in to the caves. (On a nice day you can wade in to some of them, but that wouldn’t be smart on a day like this was.)
