Rain storm over Macclesfield

Softness of the rain

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.
