Late yesterday afternoon and early evening we had quite the monsoon storm at our house and was the second storm in less than 24 hours. I had been sitting on our patio drinking a glass of wine and eating some cheese and crackers enjoying the rain and cooler temperature. It rained for over an hour and at times was quite the downpour. As I was watching the radar, I saw there was a break in the storm before the next round of rain came. Perfect chance to do some macro photography of raindrops on my elephant ear plant which is a succulent! Quickly, I went inside and grabbed my camera and tripod. Less than 10 minutes after I started shooting, I heard thunder and decided not to chance getting soaked in a downpour, especially since the rain cover for my camera was inside, and I went back onto our covered patio. About 5 minutes later, it started to rain again. By the time the rain stopped again, it was too dark to do any more macro photography of raindrops.
