009/2011 rain

009/2011 rain, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Living on the coast, you’ve got to be prepared for quickly changing weather. This morning it was plus degrees, and pouring with rain. Snow on the conifer bush in front of our house had melted into droplets of water, which turned out quite strange in this picture. They almost look solid!

I’ve been helping my daughter pack today – she’ll go back to her university in Scotland tomorrow. I will also go back to school. A lovely holiday is over. Time for good-byes yet again. An old quote from an old favourite film (Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner) comes to mind:

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain…

    A beautiful image! Nice composition and contrast between the dark background and the drops of water.

    I just LOVE this shot! The lighting really helps to accentuate too! Well done!

    Must be hard to say goodbye, as well as resume the school routine. I’m not looking forward to it – love the holidays too much even though I don’t do anything exciting. Exquisite photo.

    Yeah, unfortunately we can’t stay on holiday forever… But I sometimes wonder if I would really enjoy it in the long run if I could. Am I very work-oriented deep down, or is it something that circumstances have conditioned in me?
    The good-byes are hard, for me especially. I always dread the moment days ahead. I’m still trying to come to terms with ‘the empty nest’.

    Our nest is half empty – but also half full. Still, it takes getting used to.
