Heavy (but short) showers  are always welcome to photographers. How to shoot them properly? Showers are good when light sources are behind us and a darker background in front. Choose a long exposition time, around 1/30 with stabilized objectives, so that rain drops can leave their trails in the picture. Try to set the aperture above 10 thus to have deep rain courtains on focus. Hold your breath and shoot!

Below, a few examples from our last week end in Ticino.
