Adverse weather conditions can be a photographer’s best friend. I headed out mid-afternoon to scout locations for a sunset shot. The weather was bad and turned worse as soon as I hit the mountains. The rain was so heavy you could barely see the road. My wipers were at full speed and rivers of water were streaking across the roads. This went on for over an hour. There didn’t seem to be an end in sight. I ended up sitting in a switchback area for a while just listening to music on the car stereo near a good overlook. Finally the rain let up just enough for me to head over to check out the view. It was spectacular. The rain clouds had briefly moved out and the next wall of rain was approaching rapidly. The weather held for about 15 minutes for me to get this shot. Then the storms came in again and the rain came down again for the rest of the day.
