I was supposed to hit the lake with friends this evening, but threatening rain early in the day led to a reschedule. The sun was shining brightly as I headed toward home after work, and it was still shining during a brief but beautiful rain shower.
I only had moments to get the camera out and push the shutter . The rain was slowing down and I was – after all – stopped in the middle of the road.
Pretty cool moment, for sure!
That really is a wonderful photo!
It was so pretty out there! Bright, bright sun and a lovely, fairly strong rain shower. Thanks!
Your photo makes me feel like a little bird and the rain drops are really big! We had a wild day of weather here. Thunderstorms and Lightning midday accompanied by hail and tornado warnings. I took the kitties to the basement when it got really dark at 3:15pm but it passed fast and kept on going….good riddance, don’t let the door hit you in the butt on the way out…LOL
Glad all is well, and yes, good riddance!! Do you get tornado warnings up / out / over there often?
Ha, not in Edmonton Alberta (up here). There’s maybe a handful every year. One giant Tornado event took place over 25 years ago and zipped thru parts of Edmonton and unfortunately cost lives and then again a major event happened in Pine Lake, south of Edmonton a few years back but not too often.
This is very beautiful…
and in a somewhat unrelated thought… it almost reminds me of something kind of ‘Matrix-like’, too… I think it’s maybe the combination of the greens / illumination / and falling water…
it’s a very cool combination!
I thought it was sort of unreal, too. At first I was hoping that a better photographer had been there, thinking the result would have had more clarity … then I fell in love with it as it is!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and the compliments…I love your photos…and hearing about your travels. 🙂
