Today's photo contest pick of the day comes courtesy of CBC Community member Don McFarlane of North Bay, Ont.
Don uploaded this captivating photo he called "Foggy Web." Rain drops cling to the delicate threads of a spider web like pearls on a necklace.
The center of the web perfectly frames the reflection of the camera lens. The trapped flies silhouetted against a purple sky are also fascinating details.
Today's photo contest pick of the day -- "Rugby in the rain" -- comes courtesy of CBC Community member Brian Ludwar of Penticton, B.C.
Brian told us he was watching the rainy rugby game from the safety of his car.
Through the window, the scene reminds us of a water colour painting.
The effect is almost surreal. Some of the drops perfectly outline the rugby player's shape.
The vibrant red of the player's uniform stands out against the green grass and the gloomy sky.
Today's photo contest pick is a beautiful shot of rain droplets "hanging out" after a shower in Brampton, Ont.
Submitted by Erika and Rüdiger through our Flickr group, we were drawn to it's clean graphic punch right from the start. As we looked closer though, we were delighted to see a row of upside down houses reflected in of the raindrops! See for yourself in the full-size version here.
"Rainbow after storm" was taken by CBC Community member catsken at Bonnechere river in Golden Lake, Ont.
This photo captures Canadian nature at its finest, fresh from the rain and bathed in light.
Today's photo comes to us from CBC Community member sutherlandheese in Winnipeg.
Called Dichotomous Daughter, the caption reads "Looking Ballerina and Feeling Mud Puddle".
We absolutely love the young adventurer's puddle-stomping get up and are sure she brightened up that rainy day as much as this photo brightened ours.
CBC Community member Lise Creurer sent in today's photo contest pick, entitled April Showers on Sultan Street.
"View from my apartment window in Toronto" writes the photographer in her caption.
We love the painterly composition and unique colours in this image.
The presence of rain obscures Cruerer's view into something surreal, reminding us once again that weather holds great power over how we view the world around us at any given time.
Today's photo of the day was emailed to us by Sunny SH of Winnipeg, Manitoba, who submitted a close up shot of raindrops clinging to a boy's face and ear.
Although the photographer's name implies the opposite of our April showers theme, her photo was bang on.
The detail suggests a light drizzle, and reminds us how we feel when we touch the rain.
