I sure can pick the days to go out with the camera. The forecast said North Wales will be clear by 11 a.m. !! Oh no it wasn't. I went to Chwarel Rhos just below Moel Siabod and it poured incessantly. I did my best to protect the camera and got quite a few shots before I called it a day. Some water managed to get into the camera and played havoc with the electrics. I have dried it out and it is now working fine.

I have learned two lessons, take the weather forecast with a pinch of salt and buy adequate water proofing cover for the camera.

The rain really brings out the colours though Rob - glad the electrics are working in the camera now

Considering the conditions you've done very well.

It's a Canon, they are soldier proof…

A stunning location despite the weather in which your have captured and crafted this very well composed and somewhat thought evoking composition. I do feel however that your image would work better in monochrome or a tint.

Slate quarry images look best in mist and rain so ideal conditions, John. Ardderchog.
Ps i use one of those dry bags where the top folds over. I just plonk it on top of the camera and ballhead while still on the tripod. Light, tough and waterproof. The click clasp can also be used to secure it although, clearly, it's just acting as an upmarket plastic bag on your camera. I alo have an optech rain cover but the bag works best for me.
