    Mine is the opposite of your's but I was indoors, inside a warm hotel room, enjoying a torrential cold winter rainstorm.

    bouncing rain
    I force the hotel window
    a little wider

    Good work, deeply chilling, thought provoking.

    Good work. Deeply chilling and also thought provoking.

    There is something almost jovial to the feeling of this… in that there is a home to run to. Also the beautiful contrast of cold running to warm (home)… and the oneness of the creek with the one also running… you, human, animal… I love the openness and rushing feeling of it all.

    Can hear and see the rapid, gurgling swollen creek, beautifully done.

    I found this one quite dark and 'swollen creek' made me think of 'swollen cheek'. Intriguing.

    Very beautiful. It made me think of the Wissahickon Creek, in Phila., where I grew up (Edgar Allen Poe mentions this area in one or two stories).
