I am lucky enough to live pretty much on the coast. My occasional, rainy day, drive to work takes me along it for the majority of the way. I am making a conscious effort to have a camera with me in the car whenever I drive so I don't miss those great opportunity shots budding photographers such as myself sometimes lament missing. A M4/3 system, coupled with a Sony NEX, makes that aim very easy to accomplish. I have been able to get some images that I would otherwise have missed. It made me feel less guilty about being soft and skipping my push bike ride to work due to a little winter rain and wind At least one person on the forum will recognise this building straight away. It is located in a very wealthy suburb in Perth and many, many people come down at all times of the day to swim near it.

I don't care whether it is a simple walk around the block or a trip to the beach for a swim. You can see the dogs love it. This is taken at a dog beach that is always popular.

The weather didn't eventuate but as I was heading back to the car, this appeared. turned into a double rainbow as well. Definitely one of those moments.

I am a fan of black and white and one of the things that I like about the M4/3 system is its size and ability to handhold one of these cameras for slower shutter speed images. I tried this as black and white due to the mixed temperature light at that time of the day and it is far better than it would be as a colour image, in my opinion.
