This trip through France by the Element team was almost ruined by weather—it rained just about every day. The pictures below seem to have magically appeared in between a steady flow of storm clouds. Everybody on this trip became a master at dodging rain drops and seizing the moment. Check out Evan Smith, Chase Webb, Karsten Kleppan, Julian Davidson, Mark Appleyard, Nassim Guammaz, and Nyjah Huston. Rain Clouds & Cobblestone will premiere on twskate.com tomorrow, October 25!
