2013 - No. 22

I was thinking this morning about what kind of shot I could do today when, out of a bright sunny sky, came this 5-minute downpour!

I normally have trouble catching raindrops, but when they're back-lit by the sun like this, it's much easier. :-)
the b&w sets the mood here.. i really like this shot.. it feels quiet even with rain falling!

well captured David are you getting jealous of our snow :)

It actually was quiet out there this morning... @mizhayz

Actually, Nic... YES!!! I miss the snow. It's supposed to snow up in Madrid today or tomorrow. Of course... it couldn't do it this past weekend while I was up there, noooo, that would have been too much to ask for. ;-) @ditto44

Looks like a bleak day .. Well captured

It looks almost like an added texture. This is my favourite lighting condition - soft backlighting with a dark background.

Very atmospheric and rain well captured. Love it in B&W.

Thanks, all! @miley89 @jpgiorgio @michelleyoung @sangwann

Nadine, I see what you mean about the texture looking almost added in. I'm not sure if it's because of the lighting of the scene or the process I used to convert to B&W (may have added a touch too much "clarity" in Lightroom). :-) @nadines

An impressive shot - literally a capture with that rain so effectively caught.
