Wet - Icefields Parkway, Banff National Park, Alberta

Most photographers do not like to shoot in rainy weather. Keeping your camera gear dry is important even if your camera is weather resistant. Another challenge is keeping the front of your lens dry so that water drops do not mar any of the photos you take. Typically, most photographers wait out the rain and hope that you don't have to wait for a half day or more before that happens. If you are lucky enough to have the rain stop, you are often rewarded with scenes like this where there is a sheen on the landscape. We were pretty lucky on this road shot somewhere on the Icefields Parkway to have a great sheen leading to the mountains in the distance. It was interesting trying to get this shot, as the traffic was pretty regular and we would all run out to the middle of the road to get a shot. It probably was quite comical for any non-photographers to witness us.
