  1. Rain is magical, no more so than in the desert. The spell of greenery deftly catching quivering pak-lets of life from the sky… as you have nicely captured here.


    1. Thank you Eric. I do love the rain, and for me it feels magical, as you say. If I could be out in it with my camera, I would.


      1. I bought a waterproof camera a couple of years ago, mostly to shoot underwater where it works fine. At some point I thought “Cool, I can take pictures in the rain!”
        Wrong. Raindrops on a camera lens are hard to work around.


        1. When I was leaving for my Costa Rica vacation, I bought a big ugly camera bag thingy with drawstring holes for my hands & another drawstring hole for the lens. Cumbersome, next to impossible to use. Wish I had the money back on that one. I have also tried the camera strap around my neck & holding umbrella in my armpit while trying to get a picture in the rain. None of those came out either. So now I just stand on my porch and admire my good fortune with the rain pouring through the downspouts.


Looking forward to your thoughts
