Some photographers enjoy storm chasing. They track tornadoes, ambush the lightning and rolling supercells, or fortify a hurricane post. I photograph dripping branches.
People usually take shelter indoors during rain, except to move between interiors. Birds are more tolerant of the wet.
Water is unkind to electronics. A cameraman can be forgiven for preferring the morning after.
Or one might step out at night, for soft glows and glimmers.
A photographer might even get muddy.
But sometimes it pays to attend the little things.
