Rain CAN be beautiful! At 4pm on a wet and blustery afternoon, I met up with Molly and her Mum at the wetlands centre. When Molly’s Mum said “ooh .. and there’s a lighthouse!” I practically jumped for joy!
Because of the rain and overcast clouds the light was very soft and beautiful. The rain had given a lushness to the grasses and flowers. We are loving the lighthouse and the signpost – giving a sea & land grounding to the image. Molly is a born model! So happy and bouyant – even in the drizzle!
This image has remained in colour to emphasize the soft blue/greys of the sky and the umbrella.
