See what happens when you challenge the rain by staging a BBQ… the sun returns. Like the old story about never opening an umbrella when the sun shines… well, I did just that to get today’s photo. How else do you take pictures directly into the sun? Find a cloud? Maybe on another day. 🙂
I often take a different road home after collecting the boys at school. Yesterday was no different. Junior son and I went in the direction of a ruined church, only to be confronted with a few sections of flooded road. The rain sure got the better of many folk in and around Dublin. We found somewhere to park… I wanted to capture the field and the road… only problem… we were looking directly into the sun.
Use one of the umbrellas as a sunscreen… yep, lets give it a try. It worked to a lesser degree and at the same time reminded me of another umbrella photo on Sheila’s blog. There we stood… twirling umbrellas this way and that… looking the complete fools… trying to get a few photo’s of the flooded countryside… all while the sun was actually gracing us with its presence for the first time in days!
PS – They have predicted some drying out weather for the next few days… just as well, I don’t think the sodden earth would have coped with much more!
