I've been away for a while, but did quite a bit of photography whilst on holiday last week. Really going to try to put more efforts into the comps. Try not promise.
May the Force be with you.

I came home (in the pouring rain), with quite a few suitable pictures, of which I decided to enter this one:

Sitting out the storm.



Here are two more I considered:

Alone ...

I like all three a lot, but for me "Alone" would beat "Sitting out the storm". I know it's a very personal thing but I do like the composition and the story it tells.

On another subject, I've only recently realised how important the title of an image can be in influencing the judge's decision. I do think all these are very well chosen.

From the first few photographs I have taken in the past month:



Keeping my eye out for weather, although our forecast remains for sunny and relatively warm for a good few days yet. Although sometimes there is some mist in the mornings, like today.

Thanks Simon.

I agree that titles can give a 'nudge,' and make you see a certain image differently, than if it was untitled, or with a different title.
I find it incredibly difficult to get the title right.

H, sunny weather is weather too! But I agree, mist and rain have more impact.

Not if you are taking pictures of Autumn colours. It has to be sunshine all the way.  :D

I managed to shoot autumn colours in the pouring rain, crouched on the pavement, wielding a camera, while struggling with an umbrella in fairly strong winds.



We're not all good weather photographers!    :legit:

There's loads of interesting 'weather' happening this week. But my 2 year old son doesn't share my interest in photography! Hopefully I'll get an opportunity over the weekend when the wife is not at work .
May the Force be with you.

I'd go for the second one, if I were you, but you have to decide!
Good flares! I haven't seen them for ages.
