365-94 Have you ever seen the rain?

My wife and I were in a strip mall parking lot and had to wait out a heavy rainstorm while sitting in my truck. Well, we didn’t really have to wait it out because we had nothing we needed to do anyhow ;-). But I didn’t feel like driving through the thunderstorm, so we hung out and enjoyed a Starbucks. While waiting, I looked around for some photo opportunities because nasty weather is always a good thing to add drama to a shot, but being in a suburban shopping center my choices were limited for anything dynamic.  I tried to capture just some rain using my Super-Takumar 50mm wide open at F1.4, but that didn’t work too well. Even shooting at 1/2000 sec., I couldn’t freeze the rain motion. Second attempt for a photo was the backup “impressionistic” shot through a rain-soaked windshield. That photo, of some distant lights and trees and taken with my DA55-300, turned out well enough to become my 365 shot for today. Enjoy!
