I can't believe how crazy the weather change has been. I mean, it was only a few days ago that the sun was out and shining. But it was pouring so heavily today that all I wanted to do was to go jump on puddles. Rain or shine, I plan to savor the time. Wherever you are and whatever you do, i hope all of you have a blessed and beautiful weekend !
Most photographers do not feel comfortable in taking photographs in bad weather. Yet bad weather sometimes presents the perfect opportunity to get most out of our skills. In particular, in the beginning of autumn rain can provide the perfect opportunity to capture wonderful photos.
Shooting in rain produces dramatic atmosphere and soft romantic scenes. Whether you are after lightning strikes or water drops, alone the incredible cloud formations can produce quite exciting and impressive photos. Reflections can occasionally produce mirrors or blurs of dancing colors, making the photography in rain beautiful and unpredictable.
I like how the rain dropped onto my umbrella. I also like the sound of the rain that can always put me into sleep. And I could sleep so deep on a raining day.
It’s unexplainable – rainy days just feel so peaceful. That is of course as long as you don’t have to be stuck in the middle of rush hour traffic. We all know that rain and rush hour are a recipe for disaster. Rain by itself is quiet and cleansing. In turn it asks that we be still as well and who isn’t in need of a little stillness these days.
This is what I love about rainy days:
* Rainy days are a permission slip from Heaven to simply slow down.
* Rain employs all of your senses. All the sound, looks and smell feel so good.
* Rainy days help me to appreciate the beauty of the sun-filled days.
So what is it that you love about rainy days? :-)
