Default It rained...

Good excercise Gary. I like the light (flash) on the top one.

We've developed a saying here. If you can see Whidbey Island, it's going to rain. If you can't see it, it's already raining.

I particularly like the top one too, Gary. Ken - judging from the shadows I think that's the sun.

LOL!

In Arizona it's the opposite:

Q: What do you call a 4" rain?
A: When the raindrops hit the ground 4" apart.

Curiously, I've been to Seattle a few times on business trips and only had rain there on one day. Always there in the summer, though.

Nice shots Gary. Well done. Looks like a nice combo that you are using there.

(I've also taken several business to Seattle in the years past. And I actually saw sunshine there on one day.)

Very nice pictures Gary.
I have a question on why you did use the 1/1000 speed setting. Sorry if it should be a weird question, but want to learn from this.

Thanks, guys. These were shot freehand and I wanted to make sure I minimized motion blur.
