After a winter of many frosts the rain arrived today and I spent a very quiet day working in the forest cafe, watching raindrops falling in the puddles. There was something mesmerising about the endless concentric circles they formed which struck me as being photogenic. Between customers I sneaked out into the precipitation with my camera and shot off some frames. I picked a fast shutter speed, to freeze the circular patterns, and used burst mode in the hope I might capture an interesting combination of circles in one of my frames. This one caught my eye and I plumped for a black and white conversion to focus the eye on those mesmeric patterns.
