I quite have the luck for bad weather, whenever I go for a photo trip. Strange that before I started with photography, each trip was filled with great weather. Or maybe I just don’t remember correctly anymore :). But also in Paris, I had few days of rain and heavy clouds. But I still try to take photos also in those conditions, trying to make the best of it. I know I wont visit Paris again for some time, so I want to have as many photos as I can :)

I took this shot a little time before sunset. I was hoping for the sky to clear out a little (as it was quite windy) but instead I got heavy rain.

This is a manual blend from two shots, taken by the Notre Dame in Paris.
