When the rain keeps pouring down for hours on end you get the feeling that it's going to tear the world down.
I fond a nice equivalent of this feeling when I looked through the windows of our holiday appartment. But trying to catch what you see with your eyes through the rain-streaked windows is not easy: You got to have the right proportion of the rain-streaks and the subject behind the window. In my case it hase a lonely house on a dune a few hundert meters away and another architectural structure a little closer. See the exact data below each photo.
Sigma 400mm at f/22(!), 1/60sec, ISO 200, -1EV, distance to window: 4m
Sigma 150 at f/16, 125 sec, ISO 200, -1EV, distance to window: 6m
There are a lot of parameters that determine how sharp the background object is and how large / coarse the rain-streaks look. I was also very surprised by how much the sight changes with each new wave of rain hitting the window.
So this is a very interesting occupation on rainy days - unless you own a studio and shoot portraits of a beautiful young model that is
