Rainy Days


Sitting here on this cold, dull, rainy day, sifting through months of images in preparation for a presentation on fishing my home waters, I came upon this soft, hazy image of another rainy day. A time much warmer and under decidedly more agreeable circumstances. A Haw River moment, tucked under an overhanging tree, waiting for the gentle front to pass.

In no real hurry for it to do so.

The image made me smile and I figured that any smile dredged up on such a dreary Monday was worth sharing. Hope you agree.

Mike, great image any time of the year, especially now when it is 30 degrees outside.

Mike I feel a warm summer shower. I love standing in the rain.

Mike, you guys can keep the rain. Otherwise, I won't get to fish up here this week!

Love the shot and how it reminds me of similar scenes tucked away in my memory...

Indeed, Seth. The image's contrast with what was going on outside my window was what drew me to it. I'm ready for spring.

Howard, a light, warm shower while wading summer waters is liberating. I'm with you.

Kirk, we'll try. Wouldn't want to mess up anyone's fishing. Good luck!

Once sat under a leaning tree just like that during a nasty lightning storm...hoping the lightning would hit every other tree on the island except that one.

Just fought the urge to put up a link to Misty Mountain Hop...

Green. How I long for some green to brighten our grey woods.

Great shot. It depicts the laziness some rain can show. Made me smile thinking of summer.
