When the heavens open on a wet day, do you feel like staying warm and cosy indoors? Me too! But I also like to venture out with my Canon camera to take stormy scenic shots. 

At first it may seem like a crazy idea; however, if you love shooting landscapes, heading out in adverse weather conditions, whether it’s rain, fog or even a thunderstorm, can reward you with incredible pictures that nobody else has taken because they would rather stay indoors! Not to mention, bad weather is often followed by clear skies and opportunities for rainbows which can also make for showstopping landscape images.
