The late afternoon is a difficult time to shoot, with the sun just overhead casting deep shadows and high contrast. Since beautiful cityscapes were out of the question, I decided on some tiles stacked up on the terrace.
I felt today should be about shadows.
The white balance was set to sunny. I could really appreciate the difference in color temperature in the highlights and the shade. Never appreciated this kind of stuff before.
It doesn’t rain like this in Jeddah every year.
It’s quite sometime since I made an entry on this blog!
Busy months at work and photography has taken a backseat.
But today’s another day and it has arrived with rain. It finally rained in Jeddah after a long two year break. You might think it’s been a heavy shower. You’d be wrong. Strong winds for around 15 minutes and a moderate drizzle for half an hour. And the rain’s gone as quickly as it had come.
The skies are clear now. But it’s a welcome relief from the otherwise humid heat.
There’s something about the rain. There’s a shine all over, instead of the drabness. Colors are more saturated and there’s a lot of texture everywhere.
Here are some shots, experimenting with double exposures:
