I woke up to rain and grey this morning. It reminded me of a photograph, one that one of my readers asked me to make into a wallpaper but I’ve just not got around to it. But the weather’s got me hunkered down inside, with a cup of tea, and looking out the window at something much like this. So for anyone feeling the west-coast rainy-season blues – this one’s for you. I’ve supplied it in 2560×1600 so it ought to cover anything up to a 30″ display with all its sombre wet-itude.
It feels just like this where I live. Thank you for sharing this as a wallpaper.
After such a hot and sunny past 6 months it’s a bit of a shock to the system to have the rainy grey days upon us. This shot sums it up perfectly. I love your composition and chosen depth of field.
This is one kind of image I really like: stripped down to essential elements, leaving just enough so that the viewer can (has to?) actively engage with it intellectually and emotionally. Thanks for sharing!
David, did you get out at about 5:30pm? The lighting was incredible!

Think stock on this one! (If you haven’t already)
Great mood in this one David. This must be from at least 4+ years back, no? An oldie AND a goodie.
Went out and looked north across the Juan de Fuca strait, and looks real wet up there. I know that NW feeling well.
Fantastic image, David!
In your book you wrote that this image is a composition of two images. One focused on the person and one on the rain-drops. How did you blend them together so seamlessly in Ps? The person must have moved during the shots, right?
I must admit, I’m with Jeffrey…nothing but sun here. There is that glorious fall nip to the air though. Man, I love fall. 🙂
Thanks for the fantastic wallpaper David. Your shots are some of my favorites…it’s a privilege to have them decorate my computer.
In a fortuitous (for me) twist, we’re full of sunshine today. Loving it. Thanks for letting me borrow the sun – even if for just a day.
