I live in Surrey, UK. and my preference is for arty outdoor photography. I have three sons so life is hectic but feel a little disappointed when a day goes by during which I haven’t had a chance to take at least one nice photograph!

    Great work Jen, love that “streaking” rain.

  • Thanks Geoff. Yes..I love the way the water bounces off the branches in different directions.

    Lovely. Those chickens don’t mind the rain it seems.. Big fav !

  • Hi Woepi, funnily enough, some of them are rescue chickens and when they first saw rain they had no idea what to do about it. Now they know rain = worms!
    Thanks for commenting…and faving.

    This is beautiful, and an instant favourite (and yes, the chickens contribute :-) ) – I love this scene, it’s so …August in my mind! Aside from my feelings :-) the composition, colour and timing are superb, the streaky rain contributes to make this look like an Impressionist painting – great work!

  • Hi Themis.. Wow…great comments thanks. Took quite a while to get one with chickens in the right place and velocity of rain in the right combo!!!

    I love this! Lovely vibe, are they your chickens?

  • Hi Rosie….thank you for your great comments. Yes, we’ve had chickens for several years now. They are hilarious and their eggs are guaranteed free range…as you can see!
