35 Beautiful Examples Of Rain Photography

Advertisement

Most photographers do not feel comfortable in taking photographs in bad weather. Yet bad weather sometimes presents the perfect opportunity to get most out of our skills. In particular, in the beginning of autumn rain can provide the perfect opportunity to capture wonderful photos.

Shooting in rain produces dramatic atmosphere and soft romantic scenes. Whether you are after lightning strikes or water drops, alone the incredible cloud formations can produce quite exciting and impressive photos. Reflections can occasionally produce mirrors or blurs of dancing colors, making the photography in rain beautiful and unpredictable.

Below we present over 35 beautiful examples of rain photography. This post is supposed to provide you with some inspiration for rainy motifs and is not supposed to be the ultimate collection of best photographs. There are definitely thousands of beautiful “rainy” photos &ndsash; feel free to share links to them in comments to this post!

All photos are linked and lead to the sources from which they were taken. Please feel free to explore further works of these photographers on their Flickr collections or their personal sites.

    An excellent collection of photos! I really love the last one as well – such an amazing scene. (I’m also a particular fan of 6, 13, 19, and 22. ^^)

    However, I have to ask – why did a photo of the Aurora Borealis make it into “Rain Photography”? (The ground is wet, sure. But I’m guessing that’s more to do with the fact that it looks like tide pools!)

    All around though, a really inspirational photo set! Thanks for sharing these with us!

    Man oh Man – what a way to wake up on a Monday! Lovely theme – fantastic pictures. Another photographer who is very comfortable in the skin is Steve McCurry – His monsoon collection is to die for.

    Keep on Keepin!
