After rain

We have had a couple of weeks of heat, dry, smoke and dust - so it was grand to have a light rain that lasted most of the afternoon yesterday. We only had about 12mm of rain but we woke to a white out and fresh crisp morning.

The flowers and trees just seemed to celebrate the moisture - so many of them had caught and retained the droplets. I love seeing the crystal fresh cleanest of the early morning droplets as can be seen in the photo above and below.

The whiteout offered some muted morning shots and contrasts.

There was no doubt about it - you could hear the plants breath this morning.


  1. Love those rain drops. We need some, suddenly summer heat has come.

  2. One gorgeous photo after another! I can almost smell the delicious scent of that gardenia.

  3. Hi P, MC & B - thanks for checking out this slice of beauty that nature offered. P - hope you get a bit of the rain - it has really refreshed things. MC - magic indeed, B - thanks. All - go well. B
