    Local Estuary shots with longish exposure about 1/5th & Distortion via rain on windscreen

    also took a few longer exposure with the pinhole but will have to wait to see if they worked

    Beautiful, Red. As you said recently, number 3 would be on my wall :) I love the distortion and "dreamyness" it adds.

    Long exposures through a rainy windshield..thanks for the idea, Red. I'll be looking forward to a rainy spring as soon as this awful winter decides to end.

    These are fantastic ReD. Since it's supposed to rain here all weekend it at least gives me something to look forward to trying.

    Short Story

    I drove to this spot to catch the high tide at 10.00 am. Parked up & immediately started shooting using the F660 & my STX1 pinhole. Raining too hard to get out of the car & It took about half hour before I realised that I had left the car lights on. Flatter than flat battery. OK wait a while & maybe it will charge enough to catch. No Joy. Flatter than flat.

    I was on the point of taking a walk back when another car drove up & the driver popped out to take some snaps of the river with his mobile. I said that was exactly why I was there & he offered a jump start if I had some jump leads handy. I checked the boot & my Jump leads were miraculously there.

    Two minutes later we were both driving away happy.

    It restored my faith in this obsession.
