Two good things about rain during a drought year.  1. it helps with the 
water storage we will so desperately need this summer. 2.  It makes for 
great photos!. 

Last Sunday, I called a camera club member up to see if I could take 
some photos of her cactus blooms.  They have a great cactus garden and 
camera club goes there to take shots on nice bright sunny days and we 
all come and show the same bright sunny slides of flowers at our 
meeting.  Rain was forecast, and was happening, so I thought I'd be 
different and take some cactus flower shots in the pouring rain.  She 
said that rain ruins the flowers.  What do you think? 

These were at the end of a roll of Ektachrome 100.  I shot a roll of 
Astia, too, but haven't scanned them yet.  Projected, they look much 
better than the E-100.  The overcast sky and rain made all the colors 
just jump out.  The Astia looks like Velvia on a sunny day.
