Day 27 (27 Jan 2012) Rain, Rain, Go Away

It’s January, and it’s warm.  47 F was the high, to be exact.  It’s supposed to be in the 20s and snowing, but what can I do, but take the opportunity to try to photograph the weather?

In the first photo I was trying to capture the splash of rain drops.  I used my 50-200mm zoom lens so I could get ‘close’ w/o getting my camera wet 🙂  I like how you can see the remainders of the drops flying out from the railing in addition to the actual splash.

The other two photos are of trees and fog.  They seemed a bit bland, so I decided to jazz them up with filters in Lightroom.
