But it was worthwhile. The grey clouds were interesting and the sun was shining through them. It'a a mixture of warm and cold, both in terms of temperature and colour. I shot around three hundred frames in the 45 minute time frame. My prefer to use the Speed Priority shooting mode which usually shoots two to three frames in succession. Find this to have more keepers from lack of camera shake, especially in low shutter speeds.
I am quite happy that I got five or six frames that I consider better than my average photos.
