|Before the storm|
|Hitting the ground from within the Azaleas|
With word of an incoming storm, I grabbed my camera to photograph what was left of the Azaleas underneath our Live Oak. I hadn't done so yet this season, and I knew that this storm was going to wipe out the flowers. With the sky gray and the light filtered, the greens and floras were brilliant reminding me of my favorite days in a rain forest years back. My mood expanded with happiness as the rains came, pouring onto the petals, the earth, and me. Even when the scene turned biblical, I stayed under the safety of the tree and my daughter's small umbrella. I wiped my camera frequently, but didn't run inside because it felt so right being out there. Totally soaked with the storm subsiding, I thought to myself that this was one of the best Azaleas with Live Oak sessions to date. Thank you Rain.
