Sky Watch Friday
Any watching of the skies this Friday (ok, technically Thurdsay) involves strong winds, blowing rain, and leaves falling from trees, all thanks to Tropical Storm Fay, which has been dumping copious amounts of rain on Florida since Monday and seems intent to try and flood as much of the state as possible by the end of the weekend.
I used a long shutter speed in these shots to try and capture some of the wind blown effect in the trees - with the glare and brightness I suppose I realy need a ND4 or ND8 filter to do it justice, the polarizer isn't quite enough. (Yes, it is fairly bright outside - one of the funny things about tropical storms: lots of wind and rain, but not always very dark.)
Visit the Skywatch blog for other posts that hopefully have more sun and less rain. :)
