I like to shoot photographs in the rain. Dark clouds provide contrast. Wet streets reflect light. In fact, a cloudy, rainy day can provide the perfect conditions for photographs that might otherwise be mundane.
|The Gothic cathedral in León, Spain wasn't nearly as interesting for photography before a short, but intense rainstorm added reflections to the scene.|
|Here's the same cathedral in color.|
|This is the scene in León, looking away from the cathedral entrance. I was lucky enough to capture a rainbow, along with the glassy pavement shortly after the rain stopped.|
|Umbrellas, clouds and reflections add to this nighttime street shot.|
|While the rain had subsided several hours earlier, the streets still shone with a glossiness that made this photograph stand out.|
|While it hadn't yet rained in Castrillo de los Polvazares, Spain, the low, dark clouds provided contrast for a dramatic photograph. I wish I had been able to photograph the stone streets during or after a rainstorm.|
