Serenity in the rain

A creek flows quietly under a distant wooden walking bridge and past the Blacksmith's shop at Waterloo Village in Stanhope, New Jersey on Saturday.  

My Wife needed a break from her college work so on Saturday we got up early and drove two hours through the rain headed to her first visit to Waterloo Village.  We walked around for a couple of hours in weather that varied from pouring rain to light drizzle to just mist before heavier rain showed up on the radar and we headed home.  She seemed to really enjoy herself, getting some really nice shots while shooting with her iPhone as she mostly does these days.  This particular shot I made with the Bronica while standing under a Maple tree in pretty steady, light rain.
