The Beauty of Rain for Landscape Photography

Most of us do not particularly enjoy being out in the rain, especially with expensive camera equipment, but enduring the elements can bring about magical moments if you are willing to put in the time and effort. The neat video follows a photographer as bad weather rolls in and shows the interesting images he was able to create.

Coming to you from Steve O'Nions, this awesome video shows the photos you can get bad weather rolls in. A lot of us would prefer partly cloudy days with no precipitation for landscape work, but not only will you not always get such days, such idyllic shots are a bit overdone to the point that it can be really hard to distinguish your personal style with them. On the other hand, if you are willing to stick around when a lot of other people would pack up their gear and head home, you are often rewarded with moody, dramatic photos, and because such shots are rarer in general, you will find it much easier to stand out from the crowd a bit, especially if you are providing a new perspective on an otherwise familiar place. Check out the video above to see O'Nions' great images.
