Standing in the gutter

It’s pouring rain, I’m just after eating a delicious meal with family and what do I do? Go shoot the leaves in the drain across the road.

I can tell you it was difficult enough holding the umbrella in one hand, camera in the other, thinking about composition and keeping my balance, without getting wet. *Phew*

Shot in Blarney on a very wet day.

    Great shot. I like how you captured the mini-dam effect of the leaves. It’s holding the water back. The drops are making the water level rise and you can feel that the "levee" will fall over and tumble into the drain.
