Serenity Project - August 2017

130/365
PLUVIOPHILE (n) 
a lover of rain. 
Someone who finds joy and
peace of mind on rainy days.

On a wet evening, I love nothing better than being cosy indoors listening to the sound of the rain trickling down the windows and gurgling through the drainpipes.  In the morning, the smell of freshly washed foliage outside is heavenly and the sight of the raindrops glistening in the morning sunshine is so beautiful.

Thought I would share an 'after the rain' image in this month's Serenity Project - a collaborative project which provides the opportunity to view 'serenity' images captured through the eyes of various photographers during the course of the month. The genres which the group share vary and may include landscapes, still life, portraits, macro, etc.


Next in the serenity circle is Mabel from Mabel Chow Photographs. Please click here to follow the circle around and enjoy what Mabel and the girls have to share this month. Can't wait to view their images.

I love the purple tones of the grass! Really unique and beautiful. I love a rainy day too, and the beauty that emerges afterwards :)

I love after the rain images. We don't have too many of those days here. And you are right, the air after rain is marvelous.
