5 in a break in the rain

after more than 24 hours of rain I was glad of a break to get out for a nice walk and to capture my 5 in 5 to join Sandie with her monthly meme.

I cheated this month as my first image is a collage of 5 pictures of the big raindrops on things – couldn’t resist the range of colours and textures


the river was running high


with a tantalizing strip of light sky on the horizon


and some great puddles for reflections


and lots of wonderfully big raindrops catching reflections of their surrounds (the orange and white line is the barriers on the bridge)


I enjoyed capturing the details and the big picture during a break in the rain – thank you Sandie for the monthly prompt.

What a fun assortment of colors in that first collage grouping. And I love everything about that last photograph.

That raindrop picture is wonderful! When I see closeups like this I always wonder what kind of lens was used.

You've reminded me how much I love rainy day photos!

Oh, great pictures! I don't know whether to say you really worked this or whether to say this really worked for you!

Thank you for joining in Helena, as always I love to see your 5in5 photos.
Even a wet dull day looks lovely when you show reflections and that raindrop, and I love all the leaves too. Great shots!

Oh, I love them all, but especially the last one!

I wish we could get 24 hours of rain - it's so dry here we're on water restrictions! I really like those raindrop photos!

Miriam said...

These are fabulous Helena, like you, I can't resist a raindrop or three. The last picture is really lovely.
