Summer afternoons in Florida often bring a sudden shower. It will sometimes rain on one side of the road and not the other. This scene illustrates the sometimes narrow band of rain, and the magnificent clouds that form in the subtropical air. The drainage canal is another common feature of the Florida landscape built to make land to farm and build on, sometimes with dire ecological effect.
