Now that is some rain you got there. WOW impressive, sometimes I like to capture 'rain' a hard thing to do.
Great shot.
Frank L Croston.: It was some downpour, Astrid,thanks very much.
Thanks for this Frank, I drove home from Devon in rain like this.It didn't stop until Stoke, many an accident on the motorways.ps Nikons gone and the zoom, got another Fuji. Will tell you the story when I see you next.
Frank L Croston.: Sorry about that, Bud....:-( Glad you made it safely home. Another! I can't wait to hear about this, I'm glad you were able to sell some stuff anyway.

The land of droughts & perpetual sunshine!
Frank L Croston.: I believe technically there is a drought here, Chris, but the sun does always return....smile
I would LOVE such a rain and such a view, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Well you know you can visit anytime, Ginnie, can't promise the rain, but the view doesn't go away...smile

I never really considered where you lived in Flagstaff; I always assumed that you were in the city. Now I know that you're on the edge of the wilderness. Let's hope that this water soaked in and not just run off. (Just seen Michael's comment; I recall you telling me about his camera collection wink )
Frank L Croston.: Well we are on the edge of the city, Alan, with a piece of wilderness on one side, I doubt all of it soaked up, it was pretty dry. Yes, I wait to find out what he has now....smile
This has the look of a painting Frank. A fine picture
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Bill.
Gorgeous! This looks like a tapestry.
Frank L Croston.: A very soggy one, Mary, Thank you.

When it rains it really rains. Is this annual rainfall in 24 hours?
Frank L Croston.: Nothing by halves here, Mike, it could well have been, we have had little since.
Wow, that's heavy - makes a great shot, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: It was, Martin....Thanks, I hoped it would.
is it that time of the week again already? wink Nice shot Frank
Frank L Croston.: It seems so, Ayush..smile Thanks.

Very civil of you. Not claiming it is Droitwich. An excellent picture.
Frank L Croston.: I didn't want to steal their thunder,so to speak, Louis, thanks, I'm glad you think so.
Very interesting with the heavy rain.

(So are you living now in Flagstaff full time or are you2 still doing the cross the ocean travels?) ; )
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Jacquelyn. Well I've been here since July, but I return just before Christmas, as my visa only allows six months stay, but hopefully I'll be back in the new year,
It's hard to photograph rain, but you did a great job here...
Frank L Croston.: It can be difficult, Larry, fortunately I had time to try a few different settings, and these seemed to capture it well. Thanks.
That's some fair old rain isn't it. I'm like Alan, I imagined you in the middle of town sort of thing, Elizabeth would find that difficult I gues after living out in the wilds for so long.
Frank L Croston.: It certainly was, Brian, we live on the edge of town, but we can walk out of the front door into these trees, it's not bad at all...smile
It's like the model for a Japanese screen painting!
Frank L Croston.: I'll take that as a compliment, Tom, I'm a big fan of Japanese art.
It is fair slatting it down, trust you were suitably attired
Frank L Croston.: Yes it was, Martin, not heard that expression before...smile Attire, yes, I had a house above me...smile
You captured this beautifully Frank!! I love it! Great view we have, eh?!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Elizabeth, I'm glad you think so, yes we do, whatever the weather! smile
An impressive shower, well captured, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Graeme, it was impressive alright! ;-)
