Last weekend we had a great stormy day at the lake cottage. Wind was pretty heavy and it rolled waves down the lake to our end of the lake. Otherwise the weather was nice; no rain and temperatures around +18 to 20 degrees Celsius. I would estimate that the heaviest gusts were around 15 m/s, while the “steady” wind was around 10m/s. During the afternoon the sky was covered with clouds and I almost lost my hope for real good shots. Dinner was just ready, when I noticed that the sky had a little lighter colour and half a minute later sun peaked through. Just asked Sari, my wife, if she could once again bear with me and my hobby and if she could keep the supper warm for a few minutes. I just heard resigned “yes, of course” when I rushed to pick up my camera gear, and down to the pier.
Wind was so hard that I needed to almost lean towards it and watch for my step, not fell down from the deck. The lake was beautiful; white waves, dark clouds and warm setting sun illuminated the scenery. Just started shooting trying the make some kind of shot of splashes and water spray, well knowing that I didn’t have any lens cleaner cloth in my pocket. There was lots of water in the air but luckily I managed to keep the front lens dry long enough the get the picture I was happy with. And within 5 to 6 minutes all the magic of the warm, setting sunlight was gone. But I sat happily down to the dining table. And oh, Sari was also pleased when I showed her the images, so I was on the safe side again 🙂
