The lucid dream after raining

Uploaded: October 27, 2007 08:43:29


It started raining as soon as I arrived Land Ends, San Francisco. Instead of returning back to home, I just let raindrops soak my camera and myself because I believed the most beautiful moment would appear after raining. Thanks to mother nature for that precious moment. It was like - a lucid dream.
