While rain and bad weather are usually a cause for grumbling, they can actually provide a rather romantic and dramatic landscape for taking a creative and inspired picture.
Smashing Magazine recently posted an excellent collection of rain photography that captures people, insects, objects and plants in the rain. Check out our gallery to see the 10 beautiful images I have chosen.
Implications - Sometimes a little wetness can make an image all the more interesting. Whether it's a young couple sharing a kiss or a lone man braving the storm, the imagery of endurance and strength is conveyed. Maybe you should take out your camera the next time the weather man calls for some rain.
