365 Day 1 - In like a Lion....

2 Jan 2014 5:39PM   Views : 283 Unique : 227

They say that March is the month that comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb but January 2014 made a good start with the first part, hope it's not too long before the 'lamb' rears its head! We spent new year with friends in Torquay and when this photo was taken, a 40 mph wind was battering rain against their sitting room window. I took this photo from inside and I know that I have the reflection on the blinds in the window, but apart from wanting the rain on the window an and to keep my camera dry, I don't think I would have been able to stay upright if I'd gone outside.

It looks really wild out there!! Had you gently placed the lens against the glass you would have avoided the reflections! Smile

Thank you Karen, I had that camera on a tripod and had to work across our friend furniture so that wasn't possible this time. Good info for future though!

As Karen says, placing your lens against the glass will prevent the reflections.
Or . . . !
Better still . . . !
Buy yourself one of those really cheap screw-in rubber lens hoods and place that against the glass.
They're invaluable if you ever visit the London Eye or an aquarium.

And I guess that because they are rubber, won't slip on the glass! I was already pushing my luck here though, in someone else's lounge clambering over furniture etc....

They don't slip on the glass, or make irritating tapping noises!

They do, however, make a light-tight seal around the end of your lens. Particularly useful if it's pressed against a curved surface.as in the London Eye.
