Perfect exposure in low-light rainy conditions - being able to freeze the motion on the engine cores. But it's not being caught by a gust. Right rudder and left aileron is standard crosswind technique deflection to correct the leftward crab into the wind, and dip the left wing into the wind to *prevent* that wing from being caught by a gust.
