haha ya, it is tough to do! getting soaked is never fun, these photos definitely made it more sweet than bitter though :D

This same thing happened to my area on our 4th of July celebration. I wish it hadn't just rained though so I could have photographed it like you did.

awesome capture, nice lightning too :D

How do you like the 24-70L? I couldn't decide between it and the 24-105L, ended up choosing the 105 for the extra length, but I'm sure both are amazing :D

thank you so much! =)

and the lens is fantastic! i love that it's F2.8, allows for so much versatility, I feel like I can capture (almost) anything when I have it on my camera :love:
