My goodness, talk about the weather gone bongos!
We are into the THIRD day of spring,the weather men said it is pouring rain the whole day; yet it was sunshine all the way to 4pm!
Then at 5.30pm we heard the roar, I know immediately it is a big hail storm! It is rather rare in this part of town, Karori; Wellington, New Zealand.
Our deck was all white, as a matter of fact; everywhere around our house are white! Out came my Olympus E-P2 with the Panasonic 7-14 zoom.
The light was fading fast, the photog in me wanting to go to the deck's railing to get a better shot. My General grumbling that it is too slippery for this old bones... I went anyway, making sure I do not skate over ;)
That is my Mazda 3 below, the garden; the road, all white. My E-P2 was wet... a quick wipe and it seems to be OK! The photo was shot at ISO 800, f5 and 1/5 sec hand held. I think my grip was very steady even with bashing hail and gale. May be the in-camera stabilizer deliver again!
I uploaded a short video for all my friends in Malaysia, hear the wind howl ;)
