Summer Rain

"Like a welcome summer rain,
humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth,
the air and you."
Langston Hughes

On Saturday afternoon, the Marble sky let go of some much needed rain.

From my doorway I watched as the droplets decorated
the puddles with ever growing, ever changing Concentric Circles.

As the rain began to let up a bit, 
I grabbed my favorite piece of rain Gear 
{and my camera} 
and I headed outside.

All the leaves, as if Glazed
caught every ounce of light there was.

as the sun shone through the rain, 
the Warped boughs, weighed down and soaking wet,
caught that light and caught my eyes.

Linking up with Tabitha for Sunday Citar
And with Ashley for Scavenger Hunt Sunday

  14. What a great set. I love that you centered it around a central theme.
    Some of your shots were very similar to a couple of mine (we must have been on the same wave-length).
    My favorites:
    Gear - What a great Umbrella and Glazed - I love the shimmer/glazed look of the leaves.
    Runner-Up - Concentric Circles (check out how we were thinking alike).
