Catching some Rain – Project 365

Today we got some unusual “June” rain preventing me to seeking out another trail to walk on. So instead I tried catching some rain related event, such as water coming out of a rain gutter downspout. These four photos were taken at different shutter speeds to see if I can catch separate water drops. To do so at the faster end I had to bump up the ISO to 16000 ignoring the picture noise for this test.
