During the deluge of rain on Sunday I noticed that an area of the garden had flooded and the snowdrops looked as though they were in the middle of a flash flood! The wind was really blowing too!
Not wishing to go out and be drenched, I raised the tripod as high as possible and angled the 500mm so I could just get the snowdrops into the frame through a small high level window that opened upwards. This position also entailed my having to stand on a chair to see through the viewfinder - very precarious!!!
