Rainy Day

It was good to get out of the house and go for a stroll in the spring rain this afternoon, through the meadows that lie alongside the River Test where it passes under the Hockley Viaduct.  It is odd, though:  the first swallows and swifts are appearing, but things are generally so behind schedule it feels as if we're having April in May.

But nothing brings out the saturation of the colours like a rainy day.  It always feels like a slightly high-risk activity, though, as far as delicate electronic kit is concerned.  One of these days I'll invest in a weatherproof camera.
