Travelling through the Peak District recently, en route to an overnight stop in Macclesfield, we crested the hill at Cat and Fiddle and were presented by a panoramic, amazing orange view of rain squalls passing across the landscape. I shot several dozen photos and shots for panoramic compositions and looked forward to getting home to see the results.
The results were pretty amazing – I love this kind of scene, where defined curtains of rain pass across the landscape. But several of the shots appeared, at first glance, to be unsharp. As I looked closer, zooming in to 300%, I realised that the softness wasn’t caused by poor focus, but by the misty rain.
