Sunshine After the Rain

Last Saturday was shorts, suntan lotion and sitting on the beach catching up with friends. This Saturday was umbrellas, raincoats and lighting the fire! That's a real treat, as we don't have an open fire at home; it's not exactly an open fire here, being a wood-burning stove, but it still smells just as good. When the rain had dwindled to just a fine mist and the sun came out, the garden was so full of photo-ops that I'll have to make two posts, one today and one tomorrow. We were standing by the pond at one stage when C felt something jump against his leg - a minute later and we spotted a big frog taking a dive into the pond. There are still tadpoles too, which I would have thought was late in a normal summer.

Goodness, I'll be glad to get back to the GIMP for my editing next week. For some peculiar reason Photofiltre, which was what I had previously installed on my aunt's PC for easy resizing when she wants to email photos, changes all my photos to 314dpi, and I don't understand the options for editing colour and contrast. So it's lucky these all came out of the camera ready to go.

  1. There is such a beauty in the leftover raindrops. I don't know if it's the texture that it appears to add or the jewel-like quality of the droplets. In any case I love the pictures.
