Quickie 2.317: Gloomy day with Horo

Seeing as there aren’t many warm days left with fall progressing quickly and winter rapidly approaching, I decided to take the opportunity today to go out for a ride. It was a balmy 15°C / 59°F and windy as heck!

Unfortunately the weather decided to play tricks on me, as soon as I got E2046’s Horo out of her protective foam it started to spit. This wasn’t much of an issue as I was sheltered by trees, but after capturing the photos below it pretty much started to outright rain. Since I don’t know how well E2046’s paint holds up to rain and Horo’s protection was a cardboard box, I opted to pack her up quickly and get out of there. Once back on the road, the rain stopped of course, a little annoying. Ok, extremely annoying. Because of this, I opted to make the photos as gloomy as I felt.

Another thing I noticed was the water level of the lake seemed awfully low. Some of you might remember a past post where I rode to this same lake, Conestogo Lake. The water level certainly wasn’t as high today as it was then that’s for sure. I suspect that it’s artificially adjusted by the dam near by, not sure if it’s to protect it from ice or what though.

    Ooo, very nice — the bokeh really gave the images a gloomy look. Loving the tiny little droplets of water on her as well — they’re pretty much in-scale with the figure!

    I assume no harm was done from the rain?

      Thanks, I almost thought they could look like tears and then thought it would have been great to get them on her face then but had to rush unfortunately.

      I don’t think any harm was done, I haven’t closely examined her since I returned.

    Gloomy as the day was, Horo definitely brightened it up.

    If only she could have contrasted more sharply against the gloom…

    The backgound of the picture is so beautiful that Horo becomes more beautiful! Good photo skill and devices.
