RAIN - Ian Hunter

Every time i take pictures of rain drops I think of this my favorite song !!!

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS 1/60 second F/3.5 ISO 80 6 mm


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Fantastic! The saturated colors after the rain can be a photographer's best friend. Well done. I love the texture and varigated colors.
