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

5-in-5-1

the river was running high

5-in-5-2

with a tantalizing strip of light sky on the horizon

5-in-5-4

and some great puddles for reflections

5-in-5-3

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

5-in-5-5

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.
