Dutch Sunshower


Raining while the sun shines. I love to see it!
Het regende, terwijl de zon scheen. Zag jij het ook?
 
Sunshower
A sunshower is a meteorological phenomenon in which rain falls while the sun is shining. It is usually the result of accompanying winds associated with a rain storm sometimes miles away, blowing the airborne raindrops into an area where there are no clouds (source: Wikipedia).

  1. Your sun shower shots are wonderful. Enjoyed your video. We've been enjoying (?) rain this week. It's been a very soggy spring here. Sun expected later in the week.

  5. Loved that photo of the biker in the sunshower! Well here it rained this morning and now has simply reverted to the default gray/damp. Hopefully this front will move through and we'll get a high pressure system to bring us some much-longed-for sunshine! Have a wonderful evening.

  7. I like the biker riding down the street in the pouring rain, that is a really nice photo. Here it rained today off and on and we had some sunshine at the same time. So I guess we too shared a sunshower. I learned a new term today. :)

  8. These are wonderful photos. I loved how you captured the rain. Raining while the sun shines is much better than cloudy. It is sunny here and very spring pleasant. I think rain is on its way tomorrow.

  10. I have seen that happen before! Beautiful photos. It was warm and sunny with just a gentle breeze in Indiana. Perfect day for a walk in the garden. Thank you for your comments and encouragement to me.

  11. That happens here sometimes, but I have never heard it called a sunshower before. I kind of like the word and will have to remember it for the next time it happens! I love your photos.

  12. So lovely! I'd love to have a sunshower today...or any kind of shower. We are desperately in need of rain here in Florida. Love the pictures.

  14. Gorgeous photos, Aritha! My favourites are those with flowers, of course.
    It was interesting to read the comments as well, concerning the weather. Here it's snowing now and everything looks white. One doesn't know anymore whether to laugh or cry... It's better to laugh. :)
    My cold has gone, I hope also you are well! xx

  17. Very pretty sun shower photos! Amazing site to see, sun and rain. Doesn't happen very often around here.
    It's going to get very cold here this weekend with wet and heavy snow. I'm hoping after this storm we will finally be in full Spring mode. ;)

    Have a delightful weekend!

    Blessings, Amy

  20. Lovely! I have seen sunshowers. Also a bit strange to see rain on one side of a street and not on the other sometimes.

  21. Sunshowers are a lovely phenomenal experience. We are heading into a few days of rain so I hope the sun will come out then.

  23. I like the idea of a sunshower. Especially if it lends itself to such pretty photos.
