It’s been raining a lot, even by Seattle standards. Recent rainfall has broken daily records, and my boots have sprung a leak. Still, never one to let anything dampen my spirits (pun intended) I am deciding to use the torrential cloudbursts as my inspiration for the week. Here are a few fluid shots I’ve taken recently.
This photo was taken in New York’s Times Square during a rain shower. The manhole covers had filled up with rainwater and reminded me of a witches’ cauldron right out of Macbeth. I can almost hear them cackling ‘Double double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble‘.
I was standing at the fountain of the National WW2 Memorial in Washington DC just as the sun went down, and caught its golden rays through the dancing waters.
This next shot was taken from Amtrak’s Empire Builder somewhere along the Missouri River, close to Wolf Point, Montana. Something about the quality of the light reminds me of the Victorian landscape paintings of Sidney Richard Percy.
The last two shots were taken at Andover Lake in Connecticut; a sparkling sunset and a gleeful dog creating ripples across the lake’s surface.
