I’m participating in the online adventure travel and photography magazine LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggers. This week’s Challenge is: Now!
My “now” moment is from last Friday, when we got to experience rain falling down the whole day and night, here in San Diego, California. I can’t complain about it much, we really need it. I actually don’t mind when it rains and doesn’t pour, which is mostly what happened. The only thing is, there are few opportunities to take pictures on rainy days. However, I experienced a “now” moment last Friday and managed to grab my camera and snap photos throughout the day to capture the effects of the rain.
I’ll be featuring all of the photos I took in two additional posts later this week, one on clouds and one of raindrops. Here’s a preview of these posts for you. Remember you can click on each image for a larger view.
Rainclouds hang quite low here, and with the high hills surrounding us, you can see the clouds creeping and crawling all over them. It was a challenge to capture them on camera because I believe a video would illustrate the effect better, but I still think the photos came out OK.
The next photo features raindrops on the branch of a thuja. I love how the raindrops manage to hang on so well to the tree.
As for the last photo, this is what every kid loves to do when it rains- jumping in the puddles! – especially if wearing rain boots. Kids really know how to enjoy the now!
These are great. I LOVE the hills with the surrounding fog. Has a bit of mystery to it.
It looks very eerie and honestly, the clouds creep up pretty fast and they look better moving than on stills. I have more photos of them so hopefully I can post them this week.
That first one reminds me of the table cloth on Table Mountain, Cape Town: http://www.phy.uct.ac.za/beyond2010/
The San Diego area is very hilly, similarly to San Francisco, but unlike there, most hills have been kept untouched until now. They’re pretty high, usually 1000 feet or more, so when the clouds crawl over them from the ocean, it has a very cool effect. I really should film some video next time it happens. It’s pretty creepy.

That green rainjacket is amazing! Love how you captured those splashing puddles. I feel like I’m right there with him.
Doesn’t it look like fun? I only had my cell phone camera then but I think it did a pretty good job (the light was good, so it helped). I got the kids rain boots this winter so now I let him jump in the puddles if he wants to, as long as he keeps his pants dry. 🙂
wow! your phone did awesome. I never would have thought that came from a phone.
And it’s not a fancy camera sensor either. It does OK outside and when you display the photos on a computer screen. I wouldn’t try to print one of these photos on anything bigger than a 4×6 paper. Still, it’s convenient when I’m out and about, like today when I spotted some cool clouds.
