It started raining last night, and was rainy and foggy this morning. I took the kids out to play in the rain, and they enjoyed getting wet and jumping puddles.

About noon, the sun came out and the rain stopped, leaving these wonderful water jewels behind.

    Your photos are very stunning. They continue to inspire my developing passion for photography. Even though I’ve not had a camera for very long (3+ yrs and my 3rd camera), I’ve been tinkering with and learning about photography. I was never interested in photography re film etc because of the hassle of developing film however with the advent of digital photography, my interest has been ignited.

    Thank you.
