It’s Raining…

And I certainly couldn’t imagine anything photo worthy today…

But I donned my gumboots and tromped out for a look… gradually calming to the cadence of a gentle rain as I stood and watched raindrops form…

and catkins…

And is it my imagination, or do these branches not look rather festive?

The orange peel fungus caught my eye, apparently undaunted by the rain, if not altogether edible!

The ivy is in its element too, quietly taking over our little piece of woodland, one silent creeping tendril at a time

And then I circled round to our winter ‘pond’, the end result of all this rain.

P1090609Is there any beauty here?

I didn’t think so but… as I stood in the rain watching the raindrops endlessly forming perfect concentric circles, with just the softest little pitter…I saw a certain beauty even in our big winter ‘puddle’.

A quiet rainy morning has a beauty all its own…

One thought on “It’s Raining…

  1. Praising God for your taking the time with your creative, inquisitive eye to sniff out God's never-ceasing, never failing beauty, even when the clouds encircle and block light. But, oh what glory there is in being "still" and knowing that He is God, as evidenced in His earthly splendor! Thank you, Linda, for your eye for detail and patience to brave the elements and sogginess to let His glory in through your lens. Love you! Keep up the great work!
