Artist's Description

No, this is not a scene from Rain Man, the wonderful movie starring Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman.

But when you live in a drought-stricken country-continent like Australia, even a light drizzle is a blessing from the rain gods.

This was shot today, just before I drove my car out of a parking slot. I was literally sitting with my seatbelt around me when I reached across for my camera and shot the tiny drops on the windscreen.

The thing that really caught my attention was that each drop on the raked windscreen was a different shape and texture.

I framed this shot deliberately, to use my rear-view mirror as the soft-focus visual enhancement in the left foreground, just to draw the eye straight to the drops in the centre of the image, where the focus was sharpest.

I do not crop, edit or enhance my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a standard Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/180 sec, ISO 200, focal length 125mm.

Featured in WINDOWS AND DOORS, August 2009.
