I took a quick trip to the hills this afternoon, a norwester was forecast and I hoped to get a few interesting shots. It turned out harder to be than I had hoped; trying to photograph towards the weather was a challenge with rain getting on the lens more or less instantly and it was very windy. So windy in fact that on the way back a tripod was useless, even weighted down. It was touch and go that I would blow away at the top of Porters Pass. I ended up increasing my ISO and using a wider aperture to try and get the shutter speed fast enough to get anything like a sharp shot.
