illuminated raindrops
More raindrops that appear to travel upward instead of downward. This false impression (in reality, the rain came from the left!) is created by the duration of the flash, which was shorter than the interval during which the shutter stayed open. The result is that the drops were illuminated more intensily at the beginning of their photographed path, i.e. at the moment the flash fired. The picture was taken with the same camera as the previous shot.
