It’s not often I get the chance to take pictures in the rain, but Wylde and I had a few hours to spare while we waited for my mother at the beauty salon. The Springs Preserve was close to the salon so we took full advantage of the extra time together. Plus, I got the chance to try out my new Nikon D7100 in something other than the endless sunlight of our desert!
