A Rainy Day at the Seaside (E-M5 photos)
3

Just some shots from a day on which we got pretty soaked during our walk along the shore of the North Sea (I know: this was nothing compared to Sandy).

Weathersealing is a blessing in those circumstances.

Zeebrugge

The Pier of Blankenberge

Deserted beach with Pier (and harbour cranes in the far distance)

At the end of the Pier (Dramatic Tone Filter in its B&W version)

I like the composition of the first two and the B&W treatment on the last image best. The second image is the strongest for me.

I enjoyed the photos.  My favorites were the first and last.

Nice images, like the 2nd and last best.  The b&w has a nice feel about it, rain adds to that!

Yes, it was that lens.  I did not have any other lenses with me on that day, and changing lenses would in any case have been hassle, with all the wetness and condensation.

About that lens : I do enjoy it.  It does a lot of things very well in the right conditions.  More specialized lenses are better at their specific tasks, but it is a nice allrounder that offers a lot of versatility, and the price was OK (bought in kit with the E-M5).
