Cloudburst Yesterday Afternoon

Wow, you didn't want to be out riding your bike without rain gear yesterday afternoon! We had just been admiring the fall foliage in the Lake City neighborhood (small photos) before we went indoors for a bit, and by the time we came back out the sky was super thick with dark clouds. About halfway home the fingers of showers descending from low clouds we could see at a distance reached us, and it poured! Rain or shine, it is just beautiful here right now.

They should put the smell of rain and fallen leaves in a bottle. Maybe the "I hate perfume" guy has done it already. 8^)

Honestly. I don't remember ever seeing fall leaves as beautiful as those you photographed. Absolutely stunning.

Bibi said...

Gorgeous. I miss Seattle and its rain and leaves!

Marcel said...

Beautiful photos for sure. Raingear is something that I have been getting real use to lately too.

I'm so envious of this photograph. I love it. Had tried photographing some leaves in rain - along with horse chestnuts - and it was a disaster. So I'm doubly impressed with your beautiful shots as i know how difficult I found it.

Like Jilly, I know it's difficult to give justice to these beautiful leaves...and you do it perfectly. Maples and what we call "American oaks" here in France are magnificent these days. One disadvantage: the grass can't be seen anymore under the dead leaves!

This is beautiful! I so love this time of year. I am ready to go out and drive around the valley and grab as many shots as I can before the colours disappear.
