I love a rainy day. In part because I like the peace and quiet it offers (no offense to my neighbors who, rightfully, like to be outside on sunny days), but also because I believe the woods are at their finest when there’s clouds in the sky and the trees’ leaves and bark are wet. The colors pop against the dark bark, and the sounds and smells are calming. It’s a beautiful time to be in the woods.
It also happens to offer great opportunities for moody photographs, something I’ve been enjoying more and more. You see, photography is a form of documentation, but it also offers an extremely rewarding form of expression.
I hope you enjoy the photographs below, not because they are accurate documents of those moments in time, but because they are accurate expressions of the feelings I experienced when taking them.
All photos were taken with the Fujifilm X-T20 / TTartisans 27mm f2.8.
