Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Rain, Rain, Go Away "

: Photographs shot in/of the rain.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:

- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.

Please note:

The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. HDR, stitching, or otherwise combining exposures in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

- Drop by the Farktography Forum (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Stats can be found here.

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

This one used 'set-up' rain.

Many thanks to the production crew -

Niece Jenna for holding the hose.
Wife Lisa for holding the pine branch that the hose water dripped through for better rain.
Daughter Lily and Mopsy for frog wrangling.
Daughter Ally (age 3) for generally getting in the way
Rip the frog for being a patient model. (He aquired that name from a big rip in his belly skin; possibly from a near death experience with a pike.)

This was a squall that came up on a sailing trip and all the streaks coming down from the clouds was a very strong downpour that missed us by about a mile.
