The 52nd running of the Head of the Charles 2016 Regatta (was last weekend) and is considered one of the largest regattas in the world with nearly 11,000 rowers from 750 universities, schools and rowing clubs representing 28 different nations. The 2 days could not have been more different from each other. Saturday was a mix of changing temperatures. Moments of coolness and then warm and back to cold raw and wetness. As expected a mid afternoon torrential downpour of rain and a further 15 degree drop in temperatures. None of the athletes on the course could escape the elements. No where to hide for the racers or myself. For me, the key was to keep shooting and keep the rain off the front of the lens. Day 2 was sunny, cool and crisp. Typical New England weather for the Fall.
