Although perhaps we should remember what Raymond Moore (see below) said about the British and rain…

“If we did but know it, the weather we so revile in these islands is about as perfect for photographic purposes as it could be made”¦ To this vile weather we owe our most charming effects. If there was no bad weather, there would be no clouds and no gales, no rain and no snow. If there is one time more than another when the country smiles the most, it is during rain.”
