Default Weather - spring shower

I love what MTNGAL did showing the rain (or was it snow) and the elk... so here is my attempt to show actual precipitation. This is harder than it looks!

Fantastic image, Bobbert

I agree with you - that capturing actual rain / precipitation IS harder than it looks!

You've done extremely well with this photo, a powerful image with autumn colours, rain drops (particularly back lit against the shadows, is good) - and brightness too (which is often absent in 'rain' photos!)

I like it... very much. I think this is one of the best true 'weather' photos I've seen in this challenge yet! Well done.

Paul

I agree, this is VERY nice! And it can be challenging to capture rain. Snow is fairly easy (that's what I was shooting through on the elk picture).

Really very well done. The use of natural light to capture the rain is perfect. Looks like there should be a rainbow somewhere.

You need a really fast shutter speed to stop the motion of the raindrops but too fast a shutter may actually make the rain hard to see.
