PHOTOSHOOT OF NOTHING

PREVIOUS / NEXT

PHOTOGRAPHY by KRISS on 22 october 2015

Last night we had a storm around 4am in the morning and that plus the very light autumnal sleep we get lately had us up in no time.
At that point Kate said ‘look in the far distance there are lots of lightning above the sea we should go out and get amazing shots’.
Of course one of us had to stay home with the wee ones and I jumped out of bed to quickly grab my Nikon D4 mounted with a Nikkor 16-35mm f4 lately and I jumped in the car after a coconut water.

By the time I got into the car, the storm was already closing in and I could see very bright lightings in the sky but no thunder which was a good sign, the storm was still over the sea.

I had to quickly decide where to go to get the point of view I wanted and I made a bad choice.
I drove to the city center of Nerja (Spain, Andalucia) to find myself caught in the middle of the storm.

When I got out of the car, rain was pouring down like a monsoon and the lack of sleep or poor judgment got me going anyways and I quickly realized that it was raining to heavily to get anything and then that I was not sure at all the lens was tropicalized.
I jumped back in my car to get some distance with the storm and dry a little bit.
Well, this was definitely not the right day to shoot a storm, I got stuck behind a litter lorry for ages and then the storm had moved completely in another direction.

So I got back home with only these poor bad photographs handheld while driving, I am ashamed of myself.

But on the other hand this had me testing the fast drying abilities of my Seagale equipment and their tee-shirts dry really really fast.
Much faster than the swimming shorts because it’s so much thinner.
My merinos tee-shirt was almost dry by the time I got back home so in about 15 minutes in a hot car.
