Photographic challenges – there are many! One that I find particularly frustrating is when you are driving along a highway at speeds of around 100 km/hr, you can’t easily pull over, and you see an incredible scene before you. I really hate trying to get good shots from a moving vehicle, especially if they have to be taken through the windshield, but sometimes you just have no choice.
Such was the case on Saturday, driving home from a trip to the Mandarin Restaurant. As I mentioned the other day when I posted my rainbow picture, I didn’t have my DSLR with me at the time, but luckily I had my trusty little point and shoot in my purse. We were on a very busy highway where I don’t even think you are allowed to pull over unless it’s an emergency, so I broke my personal photography rule and took photos out the open window and even sometimes through the windshield (don’t worry, I wasn’t driving LOL).
We had one of Daniel’s friends with us who had never met us before that day, and I’m sure he thought I was a little bit strange because I spent the entire hour and a half drive home snapping pictures, but let me tell you it was definitely a cloud lover’s dream come true. Here are some of the results. I can only imagine how they might have turned out if I had been able to stop and set up a tripod.
