The dogs and I woke up to a very enthusiastic thunderstorm this morning. It was raining so hard that it sounded like a freight train! I know that is frequently said about what it's like before a tornado strikes but I wasn't particularly worried as it wasn't that windy out and the sky looked cloudy but "normal". It was just the rain, pouring down so heavily that it was like a waterfall!
Needless to say, none of the dogs wanted to go outside to 'do their business' so we stood in the garage, with the door to the backyard open, and watched it rain. It was actually quite beautiful! My valley looks somewhat like a tropical rain forest in late Spring!
Once the rain stopped and the dogs were fed & exercised, I decided to shoot a video ~ primarily to record the incredible sounds the birds and insects make. I know. I'm always trying to get a video that captures that magic. You're right. And I will probably keep on trying! Because I love the sound so and it's not something I'm ever likely to hear again, if/when I move back into the city...
Without further ado,
I present you with :
SHEEP and Silence after the Storm
Quit fooling around with the zoom and stand still!
I'll get it one of these days!
