Hurricane Earl

As Hurricane Earl approached coastal Virginia a few weeks ago, our entire photo staff was called to arms, in case the storm ended up being devastating. We're really, really serious about storm coverage here. The waders were in the trunk, the food to last for days, the batteries, the changes of clothes, the canned coffee, the chicken salad sandwiches-- all packed. I sat in my truck at 3 am out in Virginia Beach, waiting for the rain to begin, and by 6 am as the light rose, there was some rain and a little wind, but not much to photograph but the waves and the branches moving. When that's what you see, that's what you shoot. Pretty, pretty colors.
