Wow. I love it. I had a POTD myself last week and I didnt feel the shot merited it at all. This on the other hand is truly exceptional. Timing spot on.

I love what it says about the photographer. Everyone else is crouching and walking hurriedly away from the rain and then he comes along sets up his tripod and stands there waiting in it. A craftsman at work. Well done.
