Still raining and cold, which is a blessing after the drought… I wanted to use this situation to create a dark and moody photo in one of my favorite bathing spots near my home.
I posted my tripod in the middle of the creek and shot the image agains the walls of the bridge, giving me a nice dark background.
Finding a spot that’s secure enough for the camera to not drift away and yet deep enough for me to be immersed up to my shoulders. Getting my head soaked again and again in the 12°C water until my hair looked acceptable. Holding and operating the remote behind my back with arms looking relaxed.
A mysterious splashing a few meters away which could have been a fish or a beaver.
Don’t expect people not to look at you with concern if you do things like this in weather like that.
