Rainy days are often very tranquil and full of creative energy. I enjoy working during thunderstorms because the feeling of writing and designing is much more fluid. You can even notice these trends in society where some places geographically hold more rain than others.

I want to use this gallery to offer 44 outstanding photographs depicting cloudy, rainy weather. You can see this all over the world but some places build up an honest name for their weather patterns. Any photography lovers will enjoy this collection, along with other creative spirits. And definitely let us know your favorite photos in the comments discussion area!
