14 Creative and Inspiring Photographs That Were Taken in the Rain

Rain can be quite a downer for a lot of photographers who struggle to conceive of topics to shoot or to even get motivation to get out in the rain with their expensive camera gear. But that can be a mistake! All of the images in this collection were shot during or just after a rain storm and should serve as a bit of motivation to remind us that it's the photographer's job to imagine and know the great scenes that can be captured at any time – rain being no exception. Each one can serve as the basis of a full photo shot next time the weather turns and you're not sure what to shoot.

Rob was given his first camera (the awesome and powerful Kodak Instamatic of the late 70s) at the age of 5. He still hasn’t quite mastered it. When he isn’t tinkering on the internet updating Light Stalking, he can often be found on his unending quest for the perfect landscape shot. Rob started Light Stalking simply because he loves writing and photography. It grew to be one of the most referenced photography sites in the world.
