Nothing better than a bit of sunshine after a bit of rain.

Often I will THINK the rain has stopped until I walk under a wet and dripping tree.

A splash of color -- our seasons out here in California usually don't know whether they're coming or going.

And the promise of more rain.   So far we're having a wet start to our Winter, and yes, it's raining again this morning.   With any luck it won't be the type of rain that will keep me indoors.

Picture #2 with the visible raindrop streaks is really neat. What was the shutter speed on that shot?

Hi SINBAD'S DAD -- I was using Aperture Priority with f-4 and the camera gave me 1/25th second with ISO of 400.

By the way, next time you're in Sausalito try shooting backlit drops of water coming off the fountain -- always a good photo op.

The first photo is my favorite. Hard to resist beautiful rays streaming through the trees.
