Project 365 Photo a day: 365/202 – October Rain

It is Mid October and still raining. The best of all there are snow on the mountains. Unfortunately I could not photograph it because of all the clouds.

I took my camera with when I went to pick up the boys at school this afternoon. It was raining the whole time. When I was in school many moons ago in October we were swimming and had a stunning tan already.

The sky is suppose to be blue

It’s suppose to be Spring here in South Africa, but this morning when I woke up it was a real winter morning. Freezing cold, wind blowing and it’s raining.  As soon as the the rain stopped I took my camera and head outside to take photographs of the raindrops on the leaves of the Lilly.

Last day of winter first day of Spring! What does it really mean???

31 August 2012 and if we look at the calendar it’s the last day of Winter. 1 September first day of Spring. Well here in South Africa anyway.

Today it’s 13 degrees Celsius outside, raining and the wind is howling. I can’t see that tomorrow 1 September the first day of spring will be any different.  The only difference  between today and tomorrow will be the name of the rain. Yes the rain will we called the first Spring showers….

When I was a young girl the picture I painted for myself  of Spring was sunny blue skies, fields of flowers, butterflies sitting on the flowers and birds chirping in the trees. I guess I watched to much Heidi when I was small. 😀  Something else that I can remember about 1 September is that you did not go to school in a uniform the girls had on lovely sundresses and you took flowers to school for your teacher. In high school the boys gave the girls they liked flowers and everywhere you here of  a spring dance to collect money for one or other charity.

As I grew up that picture changed and for as long as I can remember it was still cold, the wind was still howling and it was still raining on the 1st of September…

Leaf with raindrops…

Just my luck.  The first day that I can go out and take a photo it rains….. This leaf with raindrops on it caught my eye on my way back from my parents granny flat. So I decided I did not carry my camera along just to come back inside with an empty memory card. So I took a photo of the raindrops and the leaf.

Raindrops are falling on my windscreen…. tra-la la la….. It’s a real winters day here in Cape Town today.  An icy cold wind is blowing and it’s raining treedrops….

Today when I went to pick up the boys from school I grabbed my “boyfriend” (My Camera for those who don’t know)  for a  joyride.

While waiting for the boys the raindrops caught my eye. All of them had reflections of the tree standing in front of the car in them.  I then decided this would be perfect for today’s photo of the day.

I took quite a few photo’s because every time I have got the focus on the drop and take the photo the drop runs out of the frame…

Here are just a few of today’s attempt. Next time I am taking with my Macro lenses.
