Introduction photo by John-Morgan is not for sale.

The Sound of Rain - If you would enjoy the sound of rain while you browse, click here.


This image shows the beauty of raindrops falling into puddles on the ground. The every present and gentle pitter patter sound reassuring the soul. This is a 22"x 28" print.


Some rain pictures show a different side of nature. The beauty of a soft spring rainfall is captured in this color photo of tulips rejoicing in a brief shower. A feeling of renewal and refreshment inspires the viewer.


Shot along a beach in Florida, USA by photographer Marc Epstein, this image shows a threatening rainstorm over the water with sea oats and railroad vine waiting defenseless on the sand.


Eric Kamp shot this photograph capturing the quiet beauty of a plant shedding the falling raindrops. Rather than the dark and powerful side of a storm, this photograph allows the viewer to experience the delicate beauty of each droplet and the relationship between earth and sky.


With all the signs of a rain that has settled in for a while, viewers know that a thorough soaking has arrived. Photographer Jim Richardson provides this image of the Highlanders' Statue on the Edge of Loch Shiel.


The multi-colored Aspen leaves in the photograph display the aftermath of a shower as they cradle raindrops which have recently fallen. This photograph was taken by Russell Burden.


Joseph Hancock created this image of a man walking beneath a localized shower, protected by his umbrella. Some pictures of rain such as this one are perhaps a testament to our ability to weather temporary struggles.


This photograph gives the viewer a look at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California, USA through raindrops resting on the windshield of a car. It's a common site but not one that we routinely examine. The bridge can be seen reflected at various angles in each and every droplet.


Bright fall foliage is altered but not muted in this quiet rural scene in autumn. This image was captured along along a road on Monadnock Mountain, New Hampshire, USA


Jurgen Freund shot this photograph of a Bajau fisherman in a Lepa boat in Palau Gaya, Borneo, Malaysia. Like many rain pictures, it shows an approaching storm which contrasts with the calm and fragile scene in the foreground.


Nicole Katano created this image of a small child sitting on the rain soaked ground exploring the wonders that surround him.


This photo by Upperhall, was captured in Lubaantun, Toledo District, Belize, Central America. It shows the rain soaked jungle and a lonely traveler on a muddy road.


A rainy day traveling a road way through a forest in California is the setting for this photograph by Thomas Winze. This is one of many rain pictures that puts the viewer behind the wheel of their car, insulated from the damp surroundings.


This image gives viewers a look down from a towering building to the rain soaked street below. It's a common site for many urban workers preparing to make the trek home in the afternoon.


Another rainy drive, this one set on a roadway in Tuscany, Italy. This photograph was taken by Todd Gipstein.


A soaking rain saturates all that is exposed. A slow and gentle process, this image shows cherry blossoms ridding themselves of the excess with droplets captured as they slip from the leaves and petals.


A stormy day captured long ago in Dublin, Ireland is memorialized in this photo by Tony Linck.


Like many other rain pictures, this image shows the droplets of rain on plants following a shower. The soft, lush green foliage of this grass is one of the many gifts rain brings.


This picture shows farmland being drenched by a rain shower. Neither the photographer nor the exact location of this shot is identified.


This is one of the rain pictures that provides a close up look at the aftermath of a storm. In this case, a bug's eye view of rain droplets atop flower petals. Paul Kennedy is the photographer.


The lush greens of the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park, Washington, USA is seen here near the end of a rain shower. This photographer was captured by Jamie and Judy Wild.

      Growing up on a lake I have seen the rain drops from above and below the water. It was fun to see the rain come down the lake towards us or coming across the lake at us. These are only a couple of memories but great to remember.

      I still need to buy a much better camera so I could have produce a high quality picture like this one. What I like most among the picture is the flower close-up. The flower picture looks fake at first glance!
