After the rain
I "finally" have some weather to talk about. That might seem funny to you, but when everyday is blue and sunny and hot, a few clouds and rain makes for conversation around the water cooler here.
I took most of these photos after a nice but all too brief rain the other day. It's strange here how some parts of town are nearly drowning in a down pour, and other parts get a sprinkle or two. I won't complain however, it was a much needed rain. :-)
Heavy clouds, something we don't really get to see here that often, so the sky wasn't going to escape my camera this time. ( I changed this to sepia tone for a more intense effect. )
Yes, I actually took a photo of the ground. While enjoying the freshness of the air after the rain, I noticed how the wet stones in the courtyard reflected the light.
Everything in the garden seemed to wake up.
Even the dead leaves seemed to want to take the stage one last time.
So, while I was wishing for more rain I'm thankful for what we did receive. The sky was different, and it was a nice change, and made for a more interesting, colorful sunset, and I like that. :-)
Well, it's sunny and blue again today! At least the triple digits are finally over and we are experiencing cooler, more enjoyable temperatures.
As I write this post, the window is open and the fresh air feels good. I hear the birds out there enjoying it too. :-)
I hope you are having a nice day in your part of the world!
See you soon...
