    We visited Weston yesterday despite the fact there was torrential rain, while She went shopping I took my umbrella and the trusty X-Pro1 and 3 lenses and grabbed some images in the rain as well as a couple when we went onto the Pier to get warm

    Despite a total washout and developing the knack of one hand holding umbrella while the other operates the X-Pro1, the results came out pretty well.

    Sorry, very image heavy!

    Karl, you are so right and it is as much about the challenge and getting out there as the results!

    I like your images very much. Not been to Weston in many a year but I hope to in the future as I now do lots of coastal walking.

    Neon it is worth the visit as it has undergone a lot of very positive changes, the beaches are now clean and new pier is superb.

    I really like the wet street shots with the shop lights reflected in the water. Very clever!

    Thanks both, it is a great place to visit and does offer some good photo subject matter - the pouring rain added to the impact as well as the challenge and there were not too many people around (all being sensible and staying indoors - mad dogs & photographers go out in the pouring rain).
