[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken at 09:00 in the morning on my way to lectures at the University of Cape Town. By this stage it had been raining for a couple of days.

This photo was particularly challenging. I was holding a piece of paper in my left hand to keep my camera out the rain, so I only had one hand to manage the shot.

Even in the winter here the sun usually rises fairly early. Notice how dark the rain clouds and the trees still are due to the heavy overcast conditions.

Really a good picture. I like the colors and the raindrops add character. Good sharp focus. You are doing well with "little" camera.

Great shot. I like the reflections in the raindrops and the bright pink color agains the background.

Hola Reinier: una composición muy original, un ramillete de gotas del rocío, los colores son hermosos y las particularidades de las formas y la gran altura de los árboles de fondo, la iluminación es muy buena, la nitidez en las gotas es excelente. Me gusta mucho la imagen lograda. Es encantadora y sin duda una de mis favoritas. Gracias por compartirla con nosotros. Saludos Cordiales. *Ninfa Urania*
