Rain Chains

Rain chains are a favorite photography target on dreary, rainy days with the challenge of fast shutter speed and low light.

One of the last steps in the construction of this house was the installation of gutters and downspouts. When the installer suggested rain chains rather than downspouts for the back patio area, I really did not even understand what he was talking about. Once I grasped the concept as Mother Nature’s water fountain, however, I agreed.

When it rains, I am fascinated by the patterns of water falling through the chain. Capturing the image is a great challenge to use a lens speed fast enough to stop the motion of water, and yet have enough light from the cloudy sky to illuminate the image.
