After the Rain

After the Rain. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

For today’s throwback post I’m sharing a photo from late last autumn. On a rainy day I headed out to Għargħur for a quick photography session. I particularly like the light after a storm, so I was looking forward to that. Non-photographers often think that a beautiful day is best for good photos, but in fact that’s rather boring and often causes difficulty due to the harshness of the light or plain old haze. So you’ll often find us getting excited by bad weather, and heading out when most people would rather be in.

I was using a telephoto lens to capture details of the scene as the light unfolded. In this case you can see the cliffs along the Victoria Lines in the foreground, with the road that leads to Salina. In the middle distance, to the right of the frame, you can see Mosta fort, which is still in active use by the military. I’m pretty sure I had a graduated ND filter on, but there was still extreme contrast in the scene, which complicates the post-processing.
