Raindrops on Flowers

After a week of high humidity and sweltering heat, the weather here finally cooled down with a little rain. I find that rain makes for a great opportunity to go out and take some interesting photographs.

So do you go out in the rain?

Another gorgeous shot Ming. Did you feel the effects of Hurricane Bill as he rushed along the coast of Maine?

Nice, I like purple and green!
I like to walk in the rain, as long as I have sturdy footwear and an umbrella.

I love rain! And I can't imagine having heat and humidity in Maine. Isn't it supposed to be gorgeous and temperate year-round up there?

Awesome, Ming!
Love the rain—though not when it's pouring and I'm trying to take pictures.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
