After the rain

Where I live it’s been raining lately. A lot. More than we need at the moment, so if anyone knows Mother Nature personally, please ask her to ease up a bit! Maybe average the rain over a period of weeks and months instead of hours. Just a thought…

Anyway, here’s my silver lining.

One thing I like to do after it rains is take photos, especially of flowers. The added depth and interest of the rain drops still clinging to the petals can be really beautiful.

exhibit C (one of my favorite pics, taken last summer) also took a "runner up" place in an international online photo contest!

This is definitely one of the easier photography techniques to add to your portfolio… all you need is rain and a little focus!

So, get out there and take some photos!
