With hey, ho, the wind and the rain..... by 


View from my kitchen window during the rain and gails of last week. Inspired by verse from Twelfth Night by William shakespeare.
Taken with a canon 450d and a canon 100-400mm L lens @400mm. Window rain shot separately with a canon 100mm macro lens, same camera. Layered in cs4.
One of these trees had a large bit broken off. I nearly got blown over in town later that day!

William Shakespeare
“When That I Was And a Little Tiny Boy”
(From “Twelfth Night”)

When that I was and a little tiny boy,
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
A foolish thing was but a toy,
For the rain it raineth every day.

But when I came to man’s estate,
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
‘Gainst knaves and thieves men shut the gate,
For the rain it raineth every day.

But when I came, alas! to wive,
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
By swaggering could I never thrive,
For the rain it raineth every day.

But when I came unto my beds,
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
With toss-pots still had drunken heads,
For the rain it raineth every day.

A great while ago the world begun,
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
But that’s all one, our play is done,
And we’ll strive to please you every day.

Almost retired,and a photography addict! I own a canon 7D and 5 canon lenses. I love playing in photoshop! I’m a fan of HDR if it isn’t too overdone.I also dabble in fractal art occasionally.
