Yup it’s raining and there is really no way of getting around it I want to go and photograph but I also have concern for my gear.
There are a few minutes between downpours, working quickly I ended up with the above photo. It seems to fit the mood of the day Gloomy and drippy. The evergreens of the Tongass National Forest make the best of such rainfall growing big and strong holding steadfast the thin soil that nourishes them. I live in a rainforest, not tropical by any means, but classified by the amount of rainfall received. Seattle is called the “rainy city” and they receive around 40-50 inches of rain a year, Sitka on the other hand gets upwards of 100 inches.
