You captured sun showers so well here. I've been in quite a few and they always catch me by surprise.

Beautiful photos and thanks for the info.
We also use the expression "the devil is beating his wife" for this phenomena but I didn't know it's called sunshower.
I took some photos too in the same weather conditions two days ago.

My first time to heard sun shower too, and I look at how it occur I think I have experience many times of this phenomenon back in the Philippines, just didn't know the name ^_^ Thanks for sharing this one now I know one word "sunshower" hehe!

I haven't heard the term but I have experienced the phenomenon all of my life. We had a sunshower here about two weeks ago. I love that last photo.

Great photos, love the mirror shot. I have also heard it called liquid sunshine!

Beautiful photos - the second one is gorgeous and the first one reminds me of a scene from Jurassic Park. Sunshowers are actually quite common here, as we get a lot of very localized thunderstorms late in the day and if you're under the trailing edge you're probably in the sun.

I have heard of sunshowers. We get them quite often down here. :)

I love the sky in that second photo. The sun just can't help but shine through.

Happy weekend!

Clytie said...

Stunning reflections of sun, sky, clouds and raindrops. Sunshowers. I'll have to remember that - I've seen it happen, but not often.

awarewriter said...

Both images are good. I do like the perspective of the first. Nice work.

James said...

Two excellent reflection photos! In the top one I like the look of the water drops and the sun's rays add so much to the bottom one.

Carolyn Ford said...

Beautiful sun rays! There might have been a rainbow hiding around a corner somewhere...wonderful reflections, too.

Cezar and Léia said...

I've been brought up with sunshowers - I walked home in one a few evenings ago - bright and sunny but still needed the umbrella. Cool shots Dani :) Rosie

Tash said...

Splendid skywatch & reflections. I think it's great when the two themes merge. I had not heard of sunshowers either but have experienced them.

Rinkly Rimes said...

The sun doesn't play a major role in these shots and yet they rely on it for their beauty.

Mama Zen said...

Beautiful!

Luckaa said...

T. Becque said...

We had a sunshower today! I know this expression well. Love the rays you caught.

syel said...

love the photos, and it's always a good opportunity to shoot when there's sunshowers. it happens quite normal here, so maybe the fox and the devil are getting married! :D
