Panama is a tropical country which only has two seasons, (e.g., dry season and rainy season). Our dry seasons starts during mid December and ends by mid April. Then we have our wet or rainy season which extends from mid April through mid December.
Even while we speak we are starting our rainy season. It rains everyday beginning about 1:00 p.m. through 3:00 p.m. (-5 GMC). That means we have sunshine during the morning and during the last hours of the day. It’s a perfect weather if you ask me.
As expected, yesterday we had our usual tropical shower early afternoon which lasted about two hours. After that, the black clouds migrated elsewhere and the bright sun came out of its hiding. It’s so nice to see how the surrounding changes shortly after a short rain. Everything shines as if it have been scrubbed clean by Mother Nature. Even the birds dip their bodies into the small pools of water to take their baths.
I remember viewing a 1940 Walt Disney movie called Fantasia which depicted the beauty of rain and what happens shortly afterwards. During this particular segment of the movie, music director Leopold Stokowsky conducted the Philadelphia Orchestra which performed the 6th Symphony of Ludvig van Beethoven in F. Op. 68 also known as the Pastorale.
While I was contemplating the area around my house from one of the kitchen windows, I noticed several raindrops suspended from a blue plastic string my wife uses to dry our clothes. The droplets were shining like little pieces of diamonds.
I thought it was an excellent opportunity to capture this scene. This is what came out of my Birthday camera. Here we go.
It’s amazing how much beauty is contained in a simple drop of water. Good Day.
