Sometimes when we arrive in a location, the weather isn’t the best. A few months ago I had a single day to spend in Vienna, Austria. I arrived at about 11:30 a.m. and would be leaving again at about 8:30 p.m., so I had about nine hours to explore and make photographs. As luck would have it, the weather that day was shocking. It rained on and off for most of the day and was quite chilly to boot.

Instead of sheltering in various coffee shops and hiding from the weather, I decided to embrace the wetness – time to go out and make  images in the rain!

There were some great reflections around the city and as late afternoon / early evening darkness began to fall, the reflections got even better.

Just because the weather isn’t “perfect” doesn’t mean you have to put the camera away. Sometimes you can capture amazing images, simply by exploring when most of the other tourists are hiding from the rain!

About Ken

Photography is about vision; I love making photographs that tell a location’s story – the place, the people and the culture. I'm a photographer with a relaxed approach. I'm an experienced traveller and love teaching others about photography. Images can be made anywhere - right in your back yard or in exotic overseas locations. I can teach you not only to look at your surroundings, but also to really "see" what's there. Photography is more than just pressing a button. It's also about vision. Let me show you how to explore your world.
