Sunshower

Since purchasing the Fuji 16-55 f2.8 lens last year, I’ve been dying to use it in inclement weather. Its a weather-sealed lens, and with the equally weather-sealed X-T1, its a no brainer for wet weather.

Granted, I wasn’t about to stand out in a downpour to prove it is weather resistant, but the opportunity to have it get wet a little bit and not worry about it was always on my mind. That and some sort of rain shot would be neat.

Yesterday, soon after I got home, a sun shower came through. As with a few other times this summer, I grabbed said camera/lens and hoped for something interesting.

That was the day. First off, as I stood under the canopy in the backyard (because I don’t really want to get wet), I shot the water dripping into the hanging bird bath.

I went out to the front of the house. As it was a sun shower – the sun still shining – I hoped for a rainbow. I wasn’t disappointed. There were two!

The camera and lens didn’t really get wet. A few splashes/drops. But its nice to not have to worry about water seeping in and ruining things.
