On more than one occasion I posted pictures here in FotogramaBits of striking moments that I captured from my porch, showing the Japi Mountains. The most recent one was the sunset that I shot last week after a rainy day. And when I thought that every possibility of capturing surprising images without having to leave home were gone, I came across another of these almost magic moments (which will be the theme for Fotograma’s next Month’s Gallery, coming in March).
It happened last Saturday, a sunny day that ended with a wind storm and 30 millimeters of rain in about half an hour – as if each 1 x 1 meter section (1 sq meter) had received 30 liters of water, nearly 1 liter per minute!
It was almost 7 PM when electricity went off and the phone line too. I had two DVDs to watch and decided to wait for the power to be reestablished, which only happened at around 11 PM... But it couldn’t be better: a bit later, at about 2 AM, I was prized by this moonshine illuminating the mist at the foothills. If it wasn’t for the power outage, I’d probably have missed the whole show...

Fotograma’s first Gallery in 2008 is specially dedicated to people who like these (almost) domesticated felines: a selection of 18 cat pictures.
While enjoying the photos, you can listen to the song “When Cats Take Over The World", by Jamie Anderson. Have fun!
