Landscapes & Nature - andycalnan

We recently had a crazy rain storm around here, and many places had some severe flooding. Lynne's area got it bad, many roads were shut down, and it was amazing just how many houses had brand new lakes in their front yards.

This was taken in my neck of the woods though. In Wrentham, there's some large fields with a nice country road winding between them. It's a nice back route that I love to drive, especially at night. Back when I had just purchased my DSLR, it had flooded, and I never got anything I really liked.

Well I decided I wouldn't let another flood go to waste. Using an app on my iPod Touch I figured out when sunset would be, and I went out there with my tripod and gear.

Turns out sunrise would work better with what I was shooting, as the sunset was at my back for most of what I shot. It still gave a nice color gradient in the sky, which is never a bad thing to get naturally.
