Cityscape Under Water (4th place, Weather Challenge)

Cityscape Under Water (4th place, Weather Challenge)

Washington, D.C.

Needless to say, we have had a major storm here today, and this was taken in the alley behind my house. It was quite a production trying to capture it, with my husband holding an umbrella over me and, more importantly, the camera, our dog wandering around unattended and getting into trouble, trying to avoid being drenched by passing cars, and catching the scene when there wasn't so much rain you couldn't distinguish anything.

The reflections are absolutely gorgeous. The ripples made by the rain drops very nice and fit in well with the reflections. V

Lovely. Looks like a modern painting.
