Slate coloured clouds with ragged fringes are drifting slowly overhead. Between them one has a glimpse of higher clouds of a lighter grey. I can hear the gentle swish of the rain striking a clearer note on the gravel path and a duller among the leaves. Sometimes it falls straight and heavy, till the air is full of the delicate grey shading, and for half a foot above the ground there is a haze from the rebound of a million tiny globules.
— Sir Arthur Conan Doyle said that

the drops on the camera lens imply the weather as strongly as the hazy atmosphere and the saturated ground. I like the well chosen directional arrow you included in the foreground

You too? We have had SO much rain this fall, and this month, and this week. But so far, not today. (It will be back tomorrow though.)

A beautiful photo of the heavy rain. The quote seems to fit it perfectly.

What a beautiful quote… and the perfect image to illustrate it.
Is this from Florence or Michael?

so seldom do people choose to photograph this type of scenario. I find it very refreshing showing such a deluge of rain, including the drops of rain on your lens.
