#461 Inclement Conditions
Posted By: Kerrowdown, 06-18-2019, 02:52 PM

Welcome to Weekly Challenge #461 - Inclement Conditions

My thanks go to sealonsf for the hosting of last weeks challenge and also for picking me as the winner.

We often discuss the sealing and WR qualities of our fine Pentax kit, I think it's now time to show some imagery of conditions that are far less desirable to some other well known camera brands.

I may be a tad bias on this subject, as living in the Highlands of Scotland often offers more than its fair share of such conditions. They can be either colour, B&W or toned images... as long as they convey this weeks theme. Here's a few of examples to get you all started.

The Challenge will run from now until midnight Tuesday 25th June 2019, I'll judge and post results the following day. Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Please enjoy this weeks challenge, photography is supposed to be fun... right.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo.
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

That's not fair, Kerrowdown. We just wish we could have a couple of weeks of inclement conditions (that isn't a dust storm).

Aye but dust storms count as "Inclement" too, other well known brands wouldnae dare to go out in them.

Just sunshine and lollipops in the forecast for this week (no rainbows), so I delved into the RGlasel archives. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Mother Nature putting on a show.

Ten miles North of Boston is the North Shore.When there is an ocean storm with the winds howling out of the Northeast it can be quite spectacular along the shore drive. On the left side in the background is a portion of the Boston skyline..--charliezap

Often the anticipation is more frightening than the storm.

According the manual, the operating temperature range for the K-3 is from -10 to + 40 degrees C. This view across Lake Ontario was taken at -19, according to the dashboard thermometer on our car. How low can you go?

With a lithium battery, probably to -40, although the rear LCD display might not work properly. Another reason for having a camera with an optical viewfinder. I have a beef with you entering this as an example of inclement weather, though, where I come from, -19C (-4F) is decent BBQ weather as long as it isn't too windy.
