Love the rain shots...could sure use some of it in Northern KY--where in the midst of quite a drought! The image with the raibow is stunning!

Wonderful pictures.

But that picture of the leaf with water droplets on it, I love it.

thanks for explaining the captions Harriet. Great job again, your area looks so alien to me living in the green mountains

Sorry to hear that we are getting northern Kentucky's rain right now. I'm sure that will change as the season progresses.

Les - the picture of the ivy and the water drops was taken with the K7 at ISO 2000 and run through Topaz Lab's Denoise. Since I've been playing around with the program I've started to use higher ISOs on occasion.

There's no comparison to our rather stark and your lush mountains. Believe it or not, the rainbow picture was taken at over 5,000 foot elevation - the far mountain well over 7,000. Another interesting fact about where I live is that the pasture in the foreground is identified on topo maps as the San Andreas Fault Zone. Yes, THAT San Andreas fault, and my house is less than a mile away.

we are 300mm down so far this year, and heading to summer, which is normally very dry

Love the lily and I think my favorite is the rainbow. The sky over the mojave shot is beautiful as well. I don't think I could get a shot that good from a moving vehicle.

Thanks, Mike.

John - I can't tell you how many times I've posted that I wish others drowning under constant storms send some of the rain our way. So I feel for you - looking at a long summer without enough rain in the winter. Not at all a good scene, a recipe for brush fires (and I've certainly heard about some of your horrendous fires in years past).

As per the others, the rainbow and first sunrise shots are lovely and very striking.

Song ? Reading Harriet's text the only song that came to mind was 'Singing in the Rain' !

Ira - I'm sure it wouldn't remain liquid for long with your temperatures. Surely have turned into big chunks of hailstones by the time it hit the earth !

Keith - any month without rain would constitute a drought of epic proportions in the UK
