Today, in Derbyshire, it rained. That’s not always a bad thing. Misty rain adds a strange, almost surreal, depth to pictures, especially at certain times of the year. Tree shapes take on a depth caused by the relative distance of trees from the camera. When you are actually there, alone, you can experience a sense of quiet awe.It's kind to share!
Sometimes, just sometimes, a photographic image teeters between the real and the surreal. All right, I know I often combine flowers and raindrops, but… I kind of don’t get tired of it, somehow. Play with this image, and see what you think.It's kind to share!
Summer seems to have been very erratic, this year. Yes, there have been lovely days, but a lot of periods of unsettled weather and rain, too. And heralds of autumn have come all too soon, even if some of them (like this) are quite pretty. Oh, and maybe we’ll have a few more sunny days yet…It's kind to share!
I love the challenge: How do you make a photo say ‘rain’ in an inspiring way? It isn’t easy. This shot was taken as evening was drawing in, and the rain had not long started. The old buildings (once stables, with accommodation for grooms and other staff) seemed to combine with the weather and time of day to give a moody, but intriguing effect.It's kind to share!
