A friend recently pointed me to this hidden gem of a location just 5 miles from my home, and I had a wonderful time exploring one morning in the rain and fog.

Photographed from a bird watching platform during a brief downpour, this image gave me an opportunity to try out my new Brella Bag—which actually kept the camera dry while I worked handheld!
