At this time of year, it is no surprise when a thunderstorm rolls through in the late afternoon or evening in this part of Florida--Snell Isle, St. Petersburg. There was still a light rain falling when I went out with my Nikon D300 mounted on my Induro CT214 tripod. I was drawn outside by the golden light I saw coming through the sliding glass doors of my back patio. I set all the gear up inside so I only had to spend minimal time out in the rain to make the shot.
I kept the tripod legs fully closed to shoot from this low, about 2-foot high perspective. I used a cable release as I knew some of the 7-exposures required to make the HDR image would be at least 5 seconds long, far too long to leave one's finger on the shutter for and not shake the camera, even on a very stable tripod.
