The quiet after the storm

Happy New Year to all of you!

A thunderstorm hit Bora Bora yesterday. It poured cats and dogs for two days! Last night, though, the rain stopped for a couple of hours and I ventured out into the wild.

In these days, I have a very very limited access to the Internet. So, forgive me if I don't reply soon. I do read your comments and I will catch up with you :) :)

No post processing for this image, as usual :)
