Just what they needed

Wednesday was a rainy day. This is a big event around here since a rainfall during summer happens none to two times per year! As I have mentioned more than once, I live in a very dry place :)

A little after the sunset I went for a walk with the dog. I wasn't intending to take any pictures but the atmosphere was so clear and everything looked so clean and vivid that I couldn't resist the urge to take my phone and try to capture some pictures with the last light of the day.

I am sure that if I had an iPhone, I could have done much better pictures but my humble Xiaomi was really pushed to its limits trying to perform in such low light. Apart from the pure quality (which definitely annoys me), phone photography is not something I am into. I have always found it as a "lesser" kind and avoided it, especially for subjects that I wanted to share. Nevertheless this is the second post in a row with pictures from my phone. I am either getting too old to carry my dslr all the time or I am just starting to appreciate the straightforward and casual way of capturing reality through a simple, uncomplicated camera :)

One way or another, I hope I have managed to give you a fraction of what I saw. It was an amazing evening and nature was really transformed by the rain. After months without a single drop of water, everything was dusty and pale. A refreshing rain was just what all the plants needed!

This is my (a little late) contribution to #wednesdaywalk challenge, hosted by @tattoodjay while the first picture is my entry to the weekly competition of @qurator Photo Quest/Low-Light.

I believe Xiaomi has a competitive camera lens to iPhone it all depend on the model you are using at the moment.

Very lovely captures you have. They are rare photographs and I love them

Thanks a lot, I am glad you like the photographs!
I am using a Redmi Note 9S which is supposed to have pretty good camera but I am not really satisfied with it.

Nice shots Stef, a bit more contrast than I'm used to seeing from you. Love the sunset shot with the reflections of the sky in the water!

Thank you Ruben!
I guess I have stretched the editing a little more than usual, trying to counterbalance the pure quality of the camera :)

I genuinely love your photos. Even though the quality is not what you wanted, I think your intentions shows through. I personally don't see true value in having the most expensive equipment. It all comes down to the moments you share.

Damn..it must be so hard to see rain so rare there! We have quick and short summer rains every few days which even if they last for 2-3 minutes only, it's enough to get refreshed 😁

Yes, summer is very dry and hot here, very harsh both on plants and on animals!

Where you live is so similar to me, it is also really dry here. I am not so near to the sea, but otherwise that could have been a walk I was taking near my home. Not so many olives for us this year though unfortunately, we had a wonderful harvest last year though xxx

Yes, I have seen the similarities at your posts. Spain and Greece have a lot in common. Although we make better olive oil 😊
