Precipitation of Light

Captured with a Canon EOS 5D and 75mm lens at f/8.0 for 1/400s and 200 ISO.

It looks like snow, but I promise it was rain. It was much stronger than typical Vancouver rain, but the sun was still shining as if it was a clear day.

This is also shot into the sun, and the exposure is biased to the shadows, really pushing the effect.
