went out the other day to shoot some pics of an old cart track on the moors and got caught in a big downpour, i think it added to the pictures though, i dont think it shows on these small shots but on full size u can see the rain falling quite well

The sepia look quite fits the rain falling on a (Roman road?) descending on an obscure plain

It is difficult to get get good photos on rainy overcast days but in this case it seems you have aced it. I can really feel the mood of the day. Maybe next time I won't put away my camera on such a day.

thanks for comments

when i set off it was not too bad, wasnt bothered about sunshine as i wanted a moody picture or two, i wanted broken clound idealy with odd spot of sunshine

the rain came fast and heavy but added to the pictures as it washed cleand the stone and made shots more intresting, i had a fleece jacket on and sheilded the camera from worst of rain

Bahadir, unfortunatly its not a roman road but from looking around the area i think it was constructed to move rock from a small quarry, as im sure the carts would have got stuck in the soft peat moorlands or made a dirt track very rutted and unpassable

Hi Gary, i really like #1 you can't escape the feeling of a "downpour", Having walked the same paths i know how the sepia tone exasperates the conditions.(some times it's a natural colour for the scene being a peat based moor:-). Well done and i hope you dried out.:-). Kind regards. Graham

Very atmospheic shots gary, although you cant make out the rain in the small shots, you can certainly see the impact craters those drops are leaving on the ground! Great use of sepia to!
