Wet second day of spring…

It’s raining cats and dogs outside on this lazy Sunday afternoon.

I wanted to work on my website, but my boyfriend and I decided to take it easy today. Need to rest up for the busy week ahead.

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.

Project 365 Photo a day: 365/26

Today was a cold and miserable outside.  It’s been raining since this morning.  This afternoon we had lightning and thunder but that only went on for an hour or so.  Afterwards it stop raining. I wonder if this is the beginning of winter. Now a days everything is out of sync. Flowers bloom when they not suppose to. The seasons are totally not what it was a few years back….

When I passed my studio window I saw these two Pigeons on the  railing  in the garden. I grabbed my camera for my photo of the day.

I wanted to photograph the lightning but just could not get a nice spot around the house. And to drive to a place to take photo’s would have been plain stupid. I listened to the traffic reports and everywhere it was accidents and traffic backing up for kilometers.

So these two guys will have to do for today.  Shame as they sat there I was thinking maybe I must build them a little house as a shelter from the cold…

Brrrr it's cold out here..
