Change in Weather

The rain has returned and the temperature has dropped a bit.  Please note that this is not a complaint, especially given the weather to the south of this area.  The amount of severe weather that has occurred nationally and globally thus far this year is quite a concern, especially given the current rollback of climate change initiatives in the U.S.  The storms forecast for the Mid-Atlantic region today are from the same storm system as reported in the link, and could bring severe thunderstorms and hail locally.  It it pouring rain and the thunder is rumbling as this is being written…

From a photographic perspective,  rainy days provide the perfect opportunity for making images of flora.  The overcast sky mutes contrast, and the rain enriches the colour palette.  The use of a saturated film emulation, like Fuji’s Velvia as applied here, certainly adds to the effect.  That is also the reason for making this a colour photograph-even with the very nice BW Acros emulation, this particular scene would appear quite flat due to the predominance of mid-tones in the image.  Yes, sometimes colour is a better choice.  It is nice to have the flexibility.

Take care.
