After the Rain

California is desperately in need of rain, though strong, damaging storms we don't want.  The storm this weekend brought really strong winds and heavy rain.

Though after such storms, there's a calm and stillness that needs to be experienced.  So I headed out the door as the sun was coming up, to capture some sights.

The new moon rising up above the passing storm clouds.

I love capturing reflections, especially in waters as still as glass.  Image reversed in Lightroom.

A lot of debris littering the ground, and this wasn't the worst of it...

Not the sight you want to see in the morning: a tree ripped from the ground and sitting atop two cars.

Could it be Puff The Magic Dragon?
