The Rain


Yesterday we had one of the many thunderstorms we have been having recently. I rushed out into the rain to try and get some photos showing the force behind it.


No hail, thankfull,y as that can be a warning of tornadoes but heavy, heavy rain.


I took scores of pictures of the birdbath trying to show the drops bouncing back up but without success. This one has some strange white lines which must be something rainy but for the life of me I can't decide what.

Today is a beautiful day. The humidity has gone and the sun is shining. It's going to be a cool 24C so I can open the curtains and window and let the air in the house. I'm even going to go for a walk.

Love big thunder storms - such power.
Also nice when everything settles afterwards, all clean and fresh. Enjoy the walk.

I love it! The lines have to be streaks of rain, too fast for the camera to capture. I've photographed snow like that, too!
