I mentioned few times that while taking photos in Astana, I had luck for a lot of rain. And this is where weather sealing of the camera and lenses comes into play. I used my Canon 5D mark IV in the rain a lot. Without any cover at all, just the camera. It works perfectly. This is the beauty of proper professional cameras. They are made to work in all situations. Of course I could not switch lenses when it rained, but one can’t have everything. And either way, the huge lens hood of the 24-70mm f2.8 lens, makes it the perfect lens to take into the rain. No drops will get on the glass :)
Stormy clouds over Astana
Here is a shot of the most dominant monument in Astana. This is the Bayterek tower right in the city center. I walked around a lot, trying to find some nice composition, to showcase the tower.
And of the the ones I got is also this view that shows the tower in the back. I used again the Formatt Hitech 10 stop ND filter (the more I take photo the more I tend to use filters :)) and I probably also used a polarizing filter, I’m just not 100% sure about it.
This is a three exposure blend. Photos edited in Lightroom, blended in Photoshop.
