It’s raining again in Kingston. It has been a wet winter — when it is not snowing, it’s raining! Fortunately, spring has arrived, with green shoots and buds emerging everywhere. During my daily lunchtime stroll back to Queen’s University, I saw stacked patio tables in front of the Grad Club, covered with raindrops. The play of light was rather interesting, so I obtained permission from the Grad Club Manager to access the locked patio. The original images came out rather flat, and the reflections and colours I had seen with my eyes were not obvious. So I found myself doing a bit of post-production on the colour space using GIMP. I adjusted the levels until the rain drops “popped out” in the way I had seen when I was walking by.
