27 Dec 04, heavy rain

27 Dec 04, heavy rain

notice the curious strobe effect due to the fact that sodium light is not continuous,
so it freezes the raindrops in a sequence of flashes otherwise invisible to the human eye.

I did NOT know that about sodium vapor lights . .I will look for that the next time I see some in the rain (not two events that I encounter together often) VERY cool BTW

Thank you for stopping by my galleries. Your comments are MUCH appreciated.
This photo is fantastic! I love the colors and everything else about it. Perfect. Upgrading to the 20D has been very tempting ... and this photo is not helping me control myself, lol!
