Hello all. I used my fz20 today for some difficult shots to say the least. Pounding rain, wind, and little light to take some shots of our local watershed. The runoff was spectacular. My pictures don't do it justice. I wrapped my camera up in a plastic bag with a hole poked for the lens, and used an umbrella to try to keep dry. Used the lens hood and filter for protection. No luck staying dry. It was so dark, I was using iso 400 for quite a few of the pictures, and the camera I thought performed well. I posted a 5 picture set in landscapes if anyone wants to see more, so feel free to look and comment. Any other ideas for shooting in this type of weather are welcome. Cheers.......thekman.

It worked for a while, but the wind and intense rain finally won out. By the time I finished, the filter was more or less covered with rain drops. Glad I bought the protection. Cheers.......thekman.

Looking at that shows a lot of power and energy. Looks like and Osterizer. Also, reminds me of "tunnel shoot" on the middle fork of the American River. One nasty rapid.

Great picture and it answers a question for me. I did Nanaimo to Victoria and back the same day and now wished I had been as inovative as you and taken my camera. The runoff coming down by the Malahat was something to see. The upside of all this rain is the golf courses should be open soon with all the snow washed away.

Ya, I can't wait for the golf season to start. I play a lot, and me and my buddies are already chomping at the bit. Where do you live and play? Cheers.....thekman.

I got the golf bug a while ago in Vancouver where I started playing at Fraserview. Played Nanaimo Golf Club on boxing day that year and I moved over and joined. We went almost a month without golf years ago. We drove to Victoria to get a round in and drove home in a blizzard. In other words, I know what you mean. I just finished checking the weather as the snow is pretty well gone and the course drains very well. (Maybe Friday)



If you are over on the Island at anytime, let me know and we could get a round in. It would give me a chance to pick your brain on my FZ20. Nanaimo is in great shape and it normally impresses out of towner's. Where abouts do you play?

Hi ejm. I play in Squamish. I joined there around 1990. Good course, and not too expensive to belong to. Island golf is great. I've played Nanaimo many times, but not for around 30 years!! Dating myself now. Heh, heh. I've played Olympic View, Duncan Lakes, Morningstar, and Crown Isle. Had a golf trip over there around 3 years ago. Lots of great courses to play over there. You never know, maybe we'll make it over there this summer. Let you know and you can pick my brain-although there's not much there to pick at. :? Cheers.........thekman.
