Photohunters: Wet - Rain

I have a zillion photographs that would work for the wet-rain theme. I decided to go with a variety of shots I have taken during 2011.
The first shot is of freezing rain on my deck in January and for contrast the second shot is warm rain on my deck at the end of the summer.
Next is a wet spring shot of the kolwitizia on my deck wall.
Another spring shot is of the rain on my hostas.
Next are some wet shots I took in the West Virginia mountains at the end of spring.
The rain drops left on the windshield below show that it was raining although not hard, since the road wasn't wet, unlike the shot above with the big puddle.
When we were in Blowing Rock, NC in October it was sunny, except for the day we drove home.
I rolled down the windows to get the shot above and below in the foothills.
The next shot was one I took when we were leaving the mountains. I managed to shoot fast enough through the front window to miss getting the wiper blade in the picture.
The last two shots were taken at my house this fall when it was raining. It is actually raining now and almost all the leaves have dropped off the trees but I have so many shots for this post, I'm not going to go outside with an umbrella to shoot the wet end of fall.
The bittersweet berries below are holding on to the raindrops.

These are all great shots! Especially appreciate the flowers though on this cold November morning :) Happy photo hunting!

These are all beautiful. The last photo with the raindrops is my favorite.

Have a fabulous weekend.

All fabulous shots. I've never seen or heard of bittersweet berries prior to this. I wonder if they ground around here too. They looks so beautiful.

Happy Friday.

Hi Carver --

Like you, I have lots of rain-themed photos. Guess we both live in very rainy places!

Of all the shots you put up, I really like the contrasting pair at the very top of your entry. It really captures the cold of one kind of rain and the warmth of the other. :)

Beautiful as always. Loved every photo especially the effect of the water on the windshield without the wiper blade. Perfect!!

Jan, you don't get snow? I like the last berry photo.

stan said...

the bucket shot. The rippling silence speaks volumes.

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting and to answer the question, yes we do get snow but I was thinking rain so I used freezing rain instead of snow.

Love the freezing rain shot - but am not looking forward to seeing more of in the coming months!
