Rincon de la Vieja


Rincon de la Vieja National Park, Costa Rica

June 3, 20162.1 Rincon de la Vieja-00118.5 mm: ISO 400: f/5.6: 1/300 sec.

While in Costa Rica, we took a morning trip to Rincon de la Vieja National Park.  This is a rain forest on a volcano.  Being in a rain forest, we, of course, experienced a lot of rain.  The rain eventually stopped, but the first mile or so, we were in a pretty bad downpour.  I tried to keep my camera under my shirt, but it was getting soaked so I finally gave in and put in in the Thinktank Harddrive bag I was testing out.  When we got out of the trees and saw this view, I pulled my camera out quickly, let it get soaking wet as I grabbed one quick shot and put it back in the bag until the rain eventually stopped.  I love the weather sealing on the XT1 as it has gotten plenty of rain and never had a problem.
