Travel theme: rain

This week’s travel theme from Ailsa at Where’s my backpack is apt. When travelling, I have a knack of attracting heavy rain either directly or indirectly to the point where my family suggested that I holiday in drought affected areas. When visiting Los Angeles in the early nineties we experienced rain that led to flash flooding, then there was heavy rain and flooding in Europe when I visited in 1999 plus several holidays to New Zealand have resulted in very soggy shoes. Nothing much has changed with rainy weather impacting on my last three holidays but I don’t mind the rain and I love the drama that rain clouds inject into a landscape.

    These photos have truly “taken my breath away”.

    We’ve had our share of clouds here just lately, Sam. Moody skies and a few beautiful rainbows. 🙂 🙂

      I love a good moody sky Jo, we’ve had quite a bit of rain over the last couple of days but the sky is plain old grey so not as interesting 🙂

    I agree that rain makes everything more dramatic! Your pictures are beautiful.

      Thanks Meg! We’re getting plenty of rain at the moment but it is too wet for me to be out taking photos, hoping for a break in the weather soon 🙂
