Rain, Beautiful Rain...


What a lovely day for taking watery photographs of the countryside... At a distance, or up close and personal. This wonder-filled view is on the road to my acupuncturists' office... It's lovely even in the rain! It's hard to believe that this is the end of October when there are so many trees that have yet to change their colors. Below are some Turkey Vultures perched above ground, waiting out the storm. And below them are water-soaked, colorful, wonderful leaves partially submerged along the roadway.





Leaves floating in a puddle in the street out in front of our home caught my eye as I walked down to get our mail. I was captivated by the colors, textures, reflections, shapes, etc. - much to the surprise and, perhaps, dismay of oncoming traffic. I no longer care what anyone thinks of me as I choose to do what captures my heart...



Above are the rain-drenched cherries on my neighbors cherry tree - the same tree in spring blossoms is in last Aprils blog entry somewhere or other.

Gorgeous photos, Pat!

I especially love the one of the floating leaves where you can see the reflection of the entire tree.

Wow! Those are some beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing.

The "blue" of the pavement and water really make those leaf colors pop.

Pat, Your photos are wonderful! I love the rain drops on the berries.

I love these photos - especially the middle one of the berries, with the out of focus white colour berries in the background almost looking as if they are floating.
