I went out yesterday to a place called Beaulieu and as always i started getting carried away taking pics. There is a lovely old stately home there, an abbey and a motor museum, so plenty to do. While we were in the lovely gardens of the stately house, there was a brief rain storm and after hiding from it for ten minutes we ventured out into the aftermath. when the day first started i didn’t really feel like taking pics but after the rain storm everything looked so lovely and fresh and splattered with left over raindrops and i love how rain drops sit on the leaves and flowers so i took a few snaps for fun and then as always i started getting carried away. Here is an example for you. It is one of the great things about photography, even when you don’t think you are in the mood, all you have to do is take one pic and your hooked again.
