Weather is a Factor

Winter tried to make a comeback in the Southwest today. I encountered some rain, and managed to make an image of it that I like and my wife likes as well. It was taken holding the camera in one hand, with a 12mm lens set to auto-focus then just point and hope. I certainly was not going to try and look through a camera while driving.

Shortly after the rain we got hit with a sudden hail storm that had drivers skidding off the road all over the place. These lower two images are from the aftermath. In the one image Albertina Watts, an EMT from MedStar Ambulance, is using tape to gently remove shards of broken glass from the face of the driver of the mini-van after it lost control, hit two different semi-trucks and a guard rail. The second image is the fire fighters cutting the van open enough to get the driver out.
