After the rain is before the rain. That surely is true for Ireland, even more so for the West coast of the island. Drenched more than once, you wish your camera was weather proof. Which it obviously isn’t. The times I had to swipe raindrops from my lenses, each time hoping not to completely smear the glass. And the times I was trying to dry the camera from the water, each time hoping it didn’t actually enter the body. But the rain brings something wonderful, too. Dramatic skies and vivid colourful sunsets and sunrises.
