We never get rain in July here in San Diego. However, this weekend was a rare exception. The remains of Hurricane Dolores that came all the way up the Baja Peninsula to hit Southern California. It was really tropical this weekend, felt like Hawaii.
We really need the rain. We're in a severe drought. My lawn is dying, even this weekend's rain may not be enough to bring it back. Oh well, with a strong El Nino, we may get hammered this fall, winter and spring. We need the rain but if it's like previous strong El Nino events it may be too much all at once.
Since the weekend was pretty much of a washout, I was itching to get out and take some photographs. I'm a big fan of David Cleland (@Flixelpix on twitter) and his e-book covering long exposures. I've got the Lee Seven5 System for my Fujifilm X100s.
These are some images from Lake Poway. I only could spend 30 minutes or so here because it just wouldn't quit raining. My Fuji X100s isn't weather sealed so getting it moderately wet was okay but the rain was a bit too much for comfort.
As always, thanks for reading.
