Frantic tree

HK is rainy and windy today; and having always mistreated my camera, I decided to be nice today and let it stay in. I took this from my window and I just like the effect of the moving tree. Don't you think it looks rather frantic while the trash can is just staying cool? How's the weather in your city?

So far, May has been the strangest month in years, weather-wise. It started out really hot, with temperatures over 30°C, before changing drastically in less than a week. We had a few days with tempretaures as low as 0-5°C and two days with hail, before it changed for the better again. The last few days have varied between 15-20°C, with some rain.

What a very cool shot! I love the way the tree looks like water!

I have wanted to take a photo of the rain however I face the same challenge you face, of not wanting to mistreat my camera. Nicholas (from Honolulu DP) has a water proof camera. Maybe that is the way to go.

PS: Your "signs" photo from May 18th is unique and interesting.

I like the scary movement a lot ;) at first sight, I thought you did some Photoshop tricks.. Here the weather is cold. Currently 12 degres Celcius, sunny, no wind, and it is 12.15pm :)

Great effect. It looks like some sort of tree monster. Weather warm - just come back from the beach

I guess we have similar weather. Windy and cloudy, no rain today but the whole day yesterday. But actually I don't mind, I think nature needs this kind of days as well... (and I have a lot of work to get done, so this weather is actually perfect) :).

It is windy and rainy here today too. We had a lot of thunderstorms all through the night last night. The temperature right now is 62F--not sure what that is in C.

Love your pictures. The shot of the tree is cool.

The weather here: same as always. No difference.

What a great picture..I love the way the tree came out...It's been rainy and very windy here too...

Cool picture. I love the intense green of the tree.
The weather here has been VERY weird. Wind storms that blow up out of nowhere. Temperatures which fluctuate wildly every couple of days. Sudden hailstorms. Three thunderstorms within a week of each other in a place which usually gets one thunderstorm per 7 years. Crazy!

Thanks for the footprints...it looks like a few cities have some weird weather these days and I heard this could be an La Nina year...rain continues in HK today; temperature is unusually cool for May but it's pretty comfy.

Lisi, from where did you take this picture? I looks like the wind was really blowing, yet the rest of the photo was at rest ;-)

Good job!

This is the most interesting one I have seen here. Kind of creepy looking but very cool.

Yes, the tree is great with that movement and color. Our days have been the same, frantic wind, bright sun, periods of heavy rain...
