Today was a bad day for outdoor photography, noting but rain. However that did not stop me from going down to the Municipal Fishing Dock to take photos of the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta as I did the last two weeks. I put on my rain gear, including the protective plastic sleeve for the camera, and quickly took the four photos of the same sceneries as before for comparison to days 4 and 11.
This morning all that I saw was fog, eliminating the chance for catching another colorful sunrise. But true to taken pictures of the same scene as during the last two weeks Day 1 and Day 8, I waited until there was enough light to trying taken the four photos. Yes, there is a lot of gray in these photos, instead of the clouds and sunrise, but I do feel there are interesting photos to put up as they are more like Black and White ones.
Finally the rain stopped, at least that what I thought as I went down to the Municipal Fishing Dock to take photos of the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta as I did last week. Just as I got on to the Fishing Pier, a localized shower started. I out waited it, and took the first wo shoots. Walking down to the end of the pier to take the last two shoots, it started again. I quickly took those remaining two shoots and got the hell out of there.
The first storm ended this morning with the second one about to start. Knowing that I would not get a colorful sunrise because of the heavy cloud cover nor would I be able to avoid the forecasted heavy rain, I decided to take advantage of the current lighting conditions showing the various cloud layers. Since I used a small aperture I had to increase the ISO setting and use the fence for stabilization.
Thanks to the break in our rain pattern and a very cold (29F/-2C) morning we have another colorful sunrise. This one is just to nice to pass by, specially since the weather forecast is that the next 9 days will be bringing much needed rain to our area. With all that rain being predicted we will see limited sunshine, if any at all. This will be a challenge for my landscape photography as I will have to deal with dark over-casted darker skies for the upcoming days.
Because of fog I was not able to get a good photo of the supper moon, but today was a different story.
We had some rain in the early morning, which now is moving out and sun is trying to take over. These photos are of the transition between the two changing cloud conditions.
For the last few nights we got some great eveing sky colors, I finally decided on Saturday to catch those colors. On Sunday we had another great display of these colorful evening clouds, so in preparation for the Super Moon Eclipse, I took some more photos. I was hoping the clouds would cleared to catch the Eclipse, but no such luck this time around. Lucky I took those earlier photos.
We have been waiting for it, is this it? The sky is turning dark with clouds. Is this a sign of rain (finally) to come? The forecast is for 40% of rain tonight!
