Incredible! So surreal...

JustRandi said...

I agree with Kim. Very surreal.
Thanks for popping in on my blog today! You're right about the Amazing Race. And that thought went through my head several times while I was in different lines at the airport!

Very nice, like an impressionists painting. Reminds me a little of my Sky Watch Friday picture from 1/18 on my photo blog, only mine was snow not rain.

Transparent. Lovely.

David, this is gorgeous! I love how you've focused in on the rain and everything else is a blur. Beautiful! (And your title rocks, by the way!)

Nap Warden said...

Great shot! Add a lot of snow, and you'd have where I'm sittin'!

Sandy Carlson said...

That's marvelous. Wet is wet is wet and no doubt about it!

Cheerio said...

I can accept rain and thunder by lightning scares me.

SexyMom said...

It reminds me when I was young, I used to get wet in the rain barely naked. *wink*

Misty Dawn said...

Great capture. When the weather keeps me from going for my walk, it bums me out.

You are just so talented. Have a great WW David. :)

Tammy said...

Wow...is that every raining!

Natalie said...

That must be one heck of a storm!

It's raining here in the SF Bay Area too. Brrr! Happy WW.

Amrita said...

Good shot

Lee said...

Very nice pix, David. I love rain. Thank you for sharing it. Focusing on the rain drops instead of the background isn't easy.

Peace!

Andrée said...

really really nice effect. It still seems bright out there, too.

Lori said...

No riding the bikes today!! Great shot. Happy WW.

MamaGeek said...

Awesome shot at 1/60th I might add! I love it, nicely done!

Amy said...

Utah Mommy said...

Great Shot! This is very unique shot! Happy WW! God bless!

mindyluwho said...

From one who loves to stare out at the rain, that is a great shot! I love reading all your witty headlines and footnotes!

Merisi said...

Better fasten your helmet, what with the size of these drops!

Technical data. Thank you! :-)

Merisi said...

Since you selected this for "Wordless Wednesday", "torrential" is what comes to my mind, looking at the picture.
May I ask where and how I can find other people's "Wordless" pictures?

ZJ said...

That's a great shot! I took photography lessons way back but forgotten all the technicalities. My photos are mostly out of pure luck! hahaha. THanks for visiting.

Roxy said...

Beautiful......I have no words..:)

Mary said...

Love it! I've been trying to get a good capture of rain here...but we haven't had much rainfall! I'm hoping the spring produces some good storms so I can get some nice rain shots, but if not, I'm sure our move to Florida in the late spring will provide more than enough opportunities!

shooting star said...

Bobbie said...

Looks like that was a real torrent! Hope you had an umbrella handy.

Ida said...

Nice shot. :)
I`m sitting here, listening to the rain dripping on my window.

alicesg said...

Nice capture of the rains. Is this rain from Singapore? Hahaha....I got one too. (http://alicesg.blogspot.com/2007/12/rainy-day.html) I guess you visited Singapore during end of the year. It was the raining season.

Shrink Wrapped Scream said...

Oh my, what a dramatic picture!

Dragonstar said...

That's quite a shot! I have to admit it would never have occurred to me.

Queen of My Domain said...

I like this photo. You can almost feel the rain running down your face.
