Rain and more rain

Rain on the Columbia River in Astoria, OregonThe Columbia River, Astoria, Oregon ~
December 16, 2009

Imagine that. It's something we get a lot of here on the North Coast. It gives us our beautiful rainforests, of which I intend to post more this year. I like the sun, too, but rain, rain, and more rain is what creates our unique and always-interesting ecological niche. I don't mind it. Growing up in a dry climate, I would savor every storm. I've passed that intense fascination after living here for more than 8 years, but I still love the rain. Let it come. I took this photo at the base of the radio tower at 15th Street and the River Walk. That's Englund Marine's old building on the right. I don't get tired of looking at that, either. It's very picturesque.

Now THAT'S a river (even if it is a street!)
It's also almost a monochrome. Nice shot.

Great rain shot. Well almost anyplace you took a shot would be a rain shot. LOL
I don't mind the rain either, just sometimes too many gray days. But rain is the reason we are called the 'Evergreen State' and also the reason I have webs between my toes. Having lived here all my life I wouldn't have it any other way because when we get 'sun breaks' we really enjoy them.

I like rain, too, Sheryl. For about an hour. Then I want sunshine.

We've got sunshine, but it's very cold -- down in the low 20's for the next several nights! Ugh!

Hope all is well with you!

We can easily say that a river, or any surface of water, makes the rain more photogenic...
