Rain and shadows

The rain has been relentless, pattering down for weeks now. It creates its own rich beauty, turning the lichen on the oaks a vivid sage green and decorating the leafless shrubs below with strings of raindrop lights. If you enlarge the above picture it's easy to see.

When the rain stops, out comes the sun and suddenly you notice shadows everywhere. Wow! I had almost forgotten about them!

The shadows on the first sunny morning after a rain were especially spectacular.

Where the light is great, the shadow is deep.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
