Rain and Sun

The weather was changeable this evening: rain, downpour, sun, and rainbow…

While I drove home, I saw rainbow. The sun was shining, and it was raining at the same time.

Project Weather: Church of the Epiphany

Богоявленская церковь // Church of the Epiphany

I already showed this photo in this blog, yet I have one more reason to do so.

The thing is this photo is now in the pool of Project Weather group. Photos from this group are used to showcase weather conditions in Yahoo Weather app.

Admins wrote me a message at Flickr with an invitation to add this photo to the group. Moderation process took several months and now this photo is in the group pool. Hence users of Yahoo Weather could see this photo by day in cloudy weather, if they’re nearby.

This photo is not original: just a fallen yellow leaf of maple on still green grass — what could be more trite? Yet it reflects that autumn comes into its own. Leaves on trees are becoming yellow and falling. Grass on fields is dried-up, and forest in distance became multicolored, the quantity of green reduces gradually.

The sky is more often cloudy, and sometimes it pours all day long…

That day was sunny, but it was very cold at the same time. And here’s this yellow leaf as a symbol of autumn. Dew drops are seen on the leaf after a colder night, and shaking blades of grass cast “dancing” shadows.
