Respite From the Heat, and Some Cropping

With the heat index (combination of temperature and humidity) reaching 44 Celsius in the city, a brief downpour was a welcome relief.

It was also an opportunity to welcome this week’s photo challenge.

I wanted to capture the movement of the rain without getting wet, so had to keep a distance.

Needed some heavy cropping to focus on this area.

Just a drizzle now, some peace.

It’s the same leaves as the first photo, cropped similarly. Here’s the original shot.

I also liked the drops on this stem.

Cropped a little tighter, to remove distractions.

Well, the rain has stopped and it’s getting humid again.

A typhoon is coming in a couple of days. It’s the time of year when the weather gets crazy.
