First of all, what Don said.
This is my personal favorite of the challenge. It took a bit of peering to see the brief paths of the raindrops, like a meteor shower, to get 'water on water'. But then I was all in. It's a beautiful abstract-ish evocation of water, and its continuity with the sky, and mediated with a darker blue land. And mentioning blue, what a delicious buffet you serve up. It feels like I'm swimming through this image, sensing and being buffeted by the power and enchantment of nature, so immediate is its grip. It reminds me of Japanese art, especially the ripples in the water and, pardon me, the delicacy of a watercolor painting.
I wish I could attach a hundred helium filled balloons to the top of this picture and float it into, get this, the upper blue reaches of the lot.
