Close Encounters with the Automotive Kind by Draken413o Close Encounters with the Automotive Kind by Draken413o
Well, I knew the risk of shooting near a puddle on the road next to oncoming traffic but to see a driver deliberately swerve and drive through the puddle to splash the water onto my camera only makes me loose faith in humanity.

Although no damage was done to my camera, I had a mild panic attack when the camera and remote was not responding to one another... But after a wipe down and good blowing (stop right there with the dirty thoughts) it worked fine.

Camera Info:
Canon 5d Mk 2 | Canon 16-35 f2.8L Mk2 | ISO 100 | 7 sec | f 9.0 | focal length 22mm

Great shot!

Shame about the guy deliberately splashing your gear though =/ At least your equipment survived!

Aw man, that sucks, it was probably a group of teenagers...it almost usually is. Well, I hate to hear that someone did that to you, but you still pulled off yet another fantastic photo!

My second guess would be some rich snob. I just don't get people sometimes. It would just be easier if he had just kept driving, but to go out of his way to do that, that's just pathetic really.
