I love mid-afternoon storms. The air is still and thick, and then as the rain begins to fall the most delicious cool change happens.
We experienced our first storm of the season the other day, one that will hopefully be followed by many. We didn't actually get that much rain, but I enjoyed it all the same!
Aside from the obvious reasons of loving rain, I also love the light contrasts it produces. I took all of these photos on the same afternoon, one after another, only slightly adjusting my settings as needed. I love the moody backdrop storm clouds produce, and I especially love it when the sun shows it's face, as it's beginning to set on a rainy afternoon. That gives so many different varieties of light and I love it!
What do you love about Spring rain?
Do you love taking photos or observing light?
Is it hot or cold, dry or wet in your part of the world at the moment?
I hope it is good wherever you are!
