About This Image

The rain was bouncing off the roof as I took this through a window that was being streaked by raindrops. The crepe myrtles in the background really enjoyed the unusually wet spring and summer.

Thank you, Alandra, Art57, Marysham, Talsi and Golda, for your kind words. I very much appreciate them. This might be the last rain we saw before entering the severe drought we are now experiencing.

Congratulations Karen. Great shot. You can hear the rain hitting the roof!

Adding my Congratulations, Karen, and echoing all the other comments. Great photo, had a hunch it would win. It has a "misty, dreamy" quality about it.
Karen Moen - Apr 09, 2008 02:47 AM EDT
Well I am going to give this another try. My internet connection erased my comment. I was completely surprised by the results. I just "knew" the lightning pictures would win. Thank you to all the members for your kind words and votes. I really enjoy sharing the photo habit with all of you and learning from each other. Again, thank you.

Well done Karen! A great shot to win the 'weather' competition. :)

Hi Karen, Congratulations on your Winning Photo!! Great photo of the rough rain. I really like how you can see the large rain drops hitting the roof, and the effect from the water running down the window.
A.Lovely - Apr 08, 2008 09:14 AM EDT
Karen congratulations! I'm so happy you won the weather contest. Such a good photograph.

Beautiful weather photo! Carol
Karen Moen - Mar 24, 2008 04:13 PM EDT
Thank you, Alovely, for taking time to view and leaving your kind feedback. We had so much rain last year that the roof sprung a leak! Now we are experiencing a drought with almost no rain.
A.Lovely - Mar 21, 2008 07:55 PM EDT
What a beautifully taken photograph of the rain pouring down. Great idea and capture. Seeing the rain bounce right off the roof is such a great catch.
Karen Moen - Mar 19, 2008 10:06 AM EDT
Hello, Marysham, thanks for viewing and your comments. Crepe myrtles have small flowers with frilly petals and do not have an odor that I can detect.
marysham - Mar 18, 2008 01:27 PM EDT
What a great weather capture Karen. I just peeked at the contest entries and see that you entered it. :) The Crepe Myrtles are beautiful with many flowers. I've never seen one other than pictures. Do they have a scent? I'll have to check out what you've been doing on pbase.
Karen Moen - Mar 18, 2008 08:13 AM EDT
Hi, Alandra. Thank you for viewing and leaving a comment. Crepe myrtles are common in the southern US as they do well in the heat and bright sun. They come in shades of red, pink and white and can be trimmed into trees. They bloom all summer long.
alandrapal - Mar 18, 2008 04:50 AM EDT
first time I've seen this one, Karen. I really like it also. I've heard about crape myrtle shrubs but have never seen one in real life, - yours looks to be a large one. Had no idea they grew that big and wasn't sure what colours the flowers were either.
Karen Moen - Mar 18, 2008 03:22 AM EDT
Thank you, Golda, for your comment. I agree about the crepe myrtles giving color and also proof of all the rain we had last year.
golda - Mar 17, 2008 02:55 PM EDT
I like this image because of the inculsion of the red flowered shrub in the background, which really adds to this shot.
Karen Moen - Mar 16, 2008 11:54 PM EDT
Thank you, Lorraine, Talsi, Whittler, Jas and Sparkle, for all your kind words. 2007 was a strange weather year for us. We had a rare ice storm, hail, damaging windstorm, an unusally cool summer, lots of rain and finally a drought that began in October. That's Texas!
sparkle1103 - Mar 16, 2008 11:42 PM EDT
Great shot. What a downpour.
Jas - Mar 16, 2008 10:21 AM EDT
Great weather shot Karen! It's difficult to capture rain but you have done it really well. :)
whittler113 - Mar 15, 2008 03:09 PM EDT
WOW!! that looks like a "Texas" rain those rain drops are huge,great shot.
talsi - Mar 15, 2008 10:09 AM EDT
