After the Rain

As I was sitting on my porch this afternoon between thunderstorms these trees kept catching my eye. The bark had been darkened by the rain, and the green of the grass and bushes seemed especially vibrant. The first several times I noticed this I just walked past it, and even went around other parts of the yard and house taking other pictures before shooting this scene. Finally I realized that if my eyes kept being drawn to this, then maybe it would make a good picture. I took several shots from about the same spot on my porch, changing the focus and exposure, trying to get it just right. I still don't think I did it justice, even with a little help from the "auto correct" button in M.O. Picture Manager.
