Rainy Seattle, 2012

Rainy Seattle, 2012

Some friends were passing through town on Thursday evening. It was their first time here so we did some sightseeing. The weather started off okay enough but things quickly went south and by the time we got to the Seattle Center, it was coming down pretty hard. I made this image from the observation deck of the Space Needle. The raindrops were blowing in sideways so I ended up shooting with the 50 mm, a fast lens with a deep hood.

Handheld at 1/15 second at f/2, ISO 1000. Nikon D800E + Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G.

    • Thanks, Frank! It was blowing pretty hard up there and as you know, the 50 has no VR….it was a good learning experience.
