Taking shelter from a rainstorm at night under the toll bridge from La Rochelle to the Île de Ré on the French atlantic coast.
I've got a lot of photos of this bridge which I want to show you eventually - the others were all planned shots but this one happened almost by accident as I had to abandon a long 1/2 hour exposure tripod mounted photo that I was taking down by the waters edge and run for cover from this sudden rainstorm.
Ironically, although it wasn't planned, it's probably the best shot of the lot compositionally and I even like the graininess from the high 1600iso as I feel it suits the mood.
Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog
