Weather system should have been called a hurricane
The forecast called for heavy rains and wind, but actually turned out to be almost a hurricane with 100 km/h plus winds. I knew there would be a bit of a surge of water along the coast, so I took a drive along Highway 331 and was not disappointed. I tried to shoot some of my initial files, outside, the wind almost blew me over.
I settled on opening the passenger's side window and using the 70-300mm VR's excellent stabilization to allow me an exposure of 1/125th sec @ f/8 for all of the recorded files. The rain that got on my D80 and lens was minimal, but it happens when you shoot in a storm!
