Rainy Day at Epcot

Today’s post is going to show some photos from a rainy day at Epcot, just like the title says. I had to go to the park to cover some things for my MiceChat column, but it was rather nasty out, which had me not wanting to go to the park at all. But since I had to go, I brought my umbrella and took out my light setup of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 Pancake Lens to the park. That way, I could hold the umbrella with my left hand, and still shoot with only my right, not having to worry about zooming or anything. It was an interesting experience, but I got a few shots I was proud of, and here they are.

The two landscape shots stood out to me, since those ominous clouds can really help a photo. I suppose the moral of the story is that a day at Disney where there is sunshine and puffy clouds would be way better than overcast skies and rain, but it is still worth it to figure out a way to shoot and take home a few winners.

Again, these were shot with the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 Pancake Lens, both of which are available at Amazon! Thanks for reading!!

    Cory! I did fantastically! I am loving the look of the pancake lens, in a way it’s quite a fun game to play, I often do that with my 50mm.. Great stuff, have spent my day off today on the blog all day, something I’ve been meaning to do for ages and I’ve learnt so much!

    I just came back from WDW with 4000 pictures, most of which I’d usually trash but I’m having great fun working on the ones I may have instantly not loved. So thank you guys for all your hard work, you’re helping people!!
