remarkable as it seems, turns out the night was much shorter than you wanted to believe, but we're only in dakota, dots on maps en route to bigger cities
rain can be both good and bad for a photographer. the reflections and changes to the surroundings offer a cool new perspective, but often you don't want to capture it for fear of getting your equipment wet. i was under a shelter when i saw this raindrop coated spider web so in theory i didn't have to worry about the latter and was relatively comfortable getting the shot that i wanted. however as i sat on the ground and turned the focus ring to try and capture the droplets as crisply as i could i suddenly felt decidedly uncomfortable. i looked down to my leg and saw the cause of this discomfort, a leech was working it's way around my ankle trying to find a suitable spot to start sucking my blood. it was my very first experience with a leech and i acted appropriately... i started to freak out. my mate reacted the way that i'd expect any good friend to, he took his camera out and started recording my distress. i'd be lying if i said that i felt any enjoyment at the time, but i came home with a cool photo and a funny video of me losing my cool.
