Autumn is usually my favourite season, but I’m not too keen on this stormy, rainy weather. For starters, it makes taking blog photos a bit challenging…
OK, let me explain…
Finding the perfect location can get a bit tricky. Take these rocks, for example. We’ve been to this island many times, and taken so many blog photos that I’ve lost count. And why not? The sea in the background adds some drama to the hair gently blowing in the wind…
It’s just that fantasy and reality don’t always meet… Especially when it’s late September, and instead of the ‘gentle breeze‘ of those long summer evenings you now get Mother Nature throwing one hell of a tantrum.
And then there’s the light. Or, rather, lack of it. It’s no longer a question of whether to take the photos before or after dinner (at the island restaurant). You get the photos done whenever the rain stops for a few minutes. And as fast as possible because you’re either freezing your [insert your choice of body part here] off or get your head blown off by Mother Nature who seems to think you’re her new kite… Besides, by the time you’re done with dinner and ready to leave, the sun will have set. And it will be raining again.
Oh well, sometimes you have to suffer for your art, right?
