Skywatch Friday 78

Scenes from a dreary rainy day (Oct 14) . . .




I didn't notice the bird when I took this photo--at least someone didn't mind the weather.


I like the slight tree reflection in the wet pavement in this one




Spider webs and red leaf reflected in the rain-drenched window



Facade of the building next door




Shadowy outline of a telephone pole

It's interesting how creative we can get even when we are stuck indoors. Loving your rain on the windows a lot.

Heather said...

Rajesh: Thank you! ☺

Lea: It is amazing how much the rain brings out the color, isn't it? Have a great weekend!

Heather said...

Jim: Thanks! ☺

Bettyl: Thank you, I had to work hard to get those rain drops - the bane of autofocus is that it kept blurring those droplets of water.

No matter how dreary the weather may seem, unique beauty can be found in it - as you've done so well here.

I've been craving a cozy rainy day so I can indoor projects done, but all we've been having is day after gloriously warm sunny day and I can't NOT be outside! Maybe if I save your rainy photos as screen savers, I can pretend… :-)

I have several favorites in this series, but really love the one of the falling rain with the brick facade behind it...

Usually I like to avoid all things rain, but you make it look beautiful. Well done.

The spiderweb plastered to the window looks like a Halloween decoration. Only more sad.

Wonderful shots of the rainy weather! We have the same last week and this week also!
