First Rains 2011

First Rains 2011 by  Rudy Girón

In Guatemala we have the following sayings: Enero loco y febrero otro poco, Crazy January and February a bit as well, or Febrero loco which means Crazy February. Well this week February is totally loco since we had cold days, below 10C/50F, hot humid days, cloudy days and clear skies days and rain; everything in just five days. Also, Volcán de Fuego was erupting an average of 4 times per hour; some hours almost every five minutes.

Today’s was captured with an iPhone while I was walking back to the office from lunch. Make sure you click on the image above to look at the large version. I like the grainy-rainy quality of it; what about you?

    I think this is the best photo of a street you’ve taken. It really made me stop and think about the work that went into laying the stones.
