Arid Rain

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 13 May 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This sky was typical of the trip - I could clearly see the rains falling - sometimes heavily - but in the dry air, no water ever reached the ground. In fact - I never saw a single drop of rain on the windshield despite hours and hours of these clouds over three days.
