Looking Out at the Rain

December 20th, 2009

The night of my arrival in Beirut I was greeted with violent thunderstorms. So violent were they that, on landing, the plane shuddered and shook a bit more than most passengers were comfortable with.

The day after was no different.

I love looking out at the rain from the cosiness of my warm, dry, armchair.

The heavy rain slows everything down, and allows you time to rediscover things at home, like books.

Of course, every so often, the showers would stop for a moment or two, allowing a furtive burst of sunlight to pass through a break in the cloud cover, before the black clouds would regroup and double their efforts at drowning the world.

And yes, the colours  in the picture above above are as is – untreated.

More pictures coming soon.
