The Beauty of Rain Falling

The other day we had so much rain, it was like
steams of water pouring from
Really beautiful.
Here are some pictures I took from my balcony.

I love the colours of the umbrellas, wet on green or red.

The water on the street - washes everything...

I love the way it glistens and shines.

I love seeing this church in the distance.

Seeing the Cross when I am walking home

is always such a sign of hope.

What beautiful, muted tones! I also find seeing the cross of the Coptic Orthodox church near my place a great comfort and hope as I walk to work and back.

What beautiful photos! I love the rain except when I have to drive in it! We've had 3 weeks of it though and I'm just about ready for some sunshine!

Yes, I do not like driving in rain either!

I hope you get some sun soon!
