Wet. Wet. Wet.

Wet.Wet.Wet.

We are back from our whirlwind of a trip to Pacific North West. While rushing from one apartment complex to another to zero in on a pad that suits us for our final move in December, I tried to soak as much of the wilderness beauty as I could. The mist enveloped trees, houses, creeks......everything, almost throughout the day and just when it would be time for us to head back to the hotel, the sun would come out briefly, as briefly as you-blink-and-you-miss-it, to lend a glow to sprayed droplets around us. It was charming, more like a honeymoon trip really than a business one. Though I am busy nursing a flu from the trip, thanks to all that wetness around me, I am looking forward to our move in December. Hope you all had a relaxed weekend and thanks for playing along on the last post :)

Too bad you're sick, Moi, I hope it won't be full blown.

You got this photo SPOT ON. I love it. A leaf! And in such perfect sillhouette. Just amazing.

Hi Moi,
Looks like you have got the rain you have been longing for, but it also sounds like you have flu which i am sure you could do without.I'm sending you some virtual tissues as you can't have your nose running everywhere.

Cheeers Mark

These images touch secret keys of the mind and they go over the classic concept of "photo"...

sandeepa said...

kiran said...

one simple word, amazing..

Jen said...

Feel better Moi!

So what sends out out to the NW?

isabella said...

Well, from your title, I knew you were not talking about Florida ;-)

It sounds as though you are thoroughly enchanted by Seattle as I knew you would be!

As for your cold, it might take several bouts of it before your organism hardens and you get acclimated to the new...climate;-)

Sarad said...

Is that, isn't that on glass? what is the photo setting. It's a you see it and say wow photo. Actually, wow what is that :-)

Lori said...

I love this picture with the leaf and the raindrops. It's really beautiful. Hope you are feeling better soon!

Mike said...

That is wonderful Moi! I see the Christian cross there. I would love to use it on my 'This I Do' blog. Could I?

JAM said...

I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. I actually took the precaution of getting a flu shot this year. I usually don't.

I love the photograph, great catch. I'd have probably missed this.

Catherine said...

Beautiful, Beautiful shot Moi!! You find such beauty in what some would consider ordinary, ~~You make the ordinary anything but!
Love this shot!
I do hope you are feeling better!!

Wendy said...

Nice photo of liquid sunshine. One question - were you sleepless in Seattle?

Steve Buser said...

Your photo really has a lot of feeling today. And you pour it out in your comments. Hope get back on top of the weather soon.

Fabulous photo.

Thanks Moi! I'll let you know when I use it.

Well done. Almost abstract.

At first you wonder if it is reflection or silhouette.

Nikon said...

Great placement, I love the leaf& the water on the glass - and the subtle blue!
Get well soon!

I'm just starting to make the rounds after several weeks of not having enough time. Thank you so much for your visits and comments, they make me smile (I write this as I look at your award on the right there, all bright and yellow and green :-)!) Hope all is well and your moving preparations are on track.

Perpetual Procrastinator said...

Time to trade in all those Florida clothes for some cold weather gear!

Get well soon. :)

Chad Oneil Myers said...

Love the image, Moi. Sounds like you had a wonderful trip!

Annie said...

You had a real introduction to misty-moisty Seattle, didn't you.

Get well soon.

Kerri said...

Oh it sounds like lovely fun. Sorry your caught a bug. I've just caught a cold too. Did you sneeze this way? ;)
Your photo depicts the climate perfectly and simply.
You are such an artist with that camera. I know I've said it before (I think)..but it's worth repeating :)

ASH's Eye said...

I have to agree with Kerri, you have a very artistic eye. Such strong lines, and then the delicate leaf.

You know, I've been in the Seattle area once before, and it stayed overcast and rainy/snowy all week - until the day we had to catch the plane! Then it was beautiful, of course :)

Sarad said...

The pic...Mystic moi doesn't want to reveal the secret :-)

Ash said...

Beautiful composition.

navin said...

This is simply amazing. The lone leaf is looking very nice. It reminds me of the monsoon months in Mumbai

Still said...

A wonderful image. I like it a lot;

Heimdallr said...

Lovely shot and description Moi.
Sorry I'm a little late but hope that cold didn't stay around for long.
