Weekend rain 4

Posted by
CElliottUK (Reading, United Kingdom) on 7 October 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The last one. But a segue into the next series which is about images from my youth(IFMY). When I was a kid, my memory was that raindrops were bigger than today, and that these bubbles were in every puddle. Probably not true, but that's how I remember it

A bubble mirror! Excellent. I love the 2 clear rings of droplet ripple as well - really neat -
So YOU get a lot of rain then? : )

7 Oct 2010 3:11pm

@Becky: It's really not that bad! I reckon that this summer was actually drier than most, but the defining characteristic of the Brits is that we all like whinging and grizzling about the weather!!!

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Obviously the same sort of weather we've suffered this week. We can just about see you in the bubble.
