After the Rain

Rain always makes for interesting shooting conditions. Around here, it rained for most of yesterday and bits of today. And even though the rain's stopped now, it's clearly had an effect.

I finally got a new lens on Friday, the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, and I had been looking for an opportunity to play around with it. On the way home, I noticed the cool-looking clouds that were drifting across the night sky, backlit by the moon. I set up my tripod when I got home, took some shots, and got this one.

As far as posts go, I'm trying to figure out how to do one that's been in the works for a week or two. Hopefully I'll finish it soon. But for now, I leave you with a famous quote from Irish playwright, author, and poet Oscar Wilde:
"We are all of us in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."
