*It always rains in your country. Make a poster for visitors to the UK explaining why so much rain Is attractive. Don't be sarcastic, After all rain can be romantic useful or beautiful.

My initial Ideas are expanding on my 2d to 3d to 2d techniques as learnt in previous briefs by playing around with photographing some water. Rain is pure, rain is water and I want to find a quote, saying, or moto and produce a piece of print that can be shot underwater. Britain reminds me of puddles so I want to use this as a key theme for my poster. I was thinking about finding a riddle or question with the answer being rain.

Facts About Rain....Rain is liquid precipitation, as opposed to non-liquid kinds of precipitation such as snow, hail and sleet. Rain requires the presence of a thick layer of the atmosphere to have temperatures above the melting point of water near and above the Earth's surface. On Earth, it is the condensation of atmospheric water vapor into drops of water heavy enough to fall, often making it to the surface. Two processes, possibly acting together, can lead to air becoming saturated leading to rainfall: cooling the air or adding water vapor to the air. Virga is precipitation that begins falling to the earth but evaporates before reaching the surface; it is one of the ways air can become saturated. Precipitation forms via collision with other rain drops or ice crystals within a cloud. Large rain drops are oblate-shaped and small drops are spherical. Moisture moving along three-dimensional zones of temperature and moisture contrasts known as weather fronts is the major method of rain production. If enough moisture and upward motion is present, precipitation falls from convective clouds (those with strong upward vertical motion) such as cumulonimbus (thunderstorms) which can organize into narrow rainbands. In mountainous areas, heavy precipitation is possible where upslope flow is maximized within windward sides of the terrain at elevation which forces moist air to condense and fall out as rainfall along the sides of mountains. On the leeward side of mountains, desert climates can exist due to the dry air caused by downslope flow which causes heating and drying of the air mass. The movement of the monsoon trough, or intertropical convergence zone, brings rainy seasons to savannah climes. Rain is the primary source of freshwater for most areas of the world, providing suitable conditions for diverse ecosystems, as well as water for hydroelectric power plants and crop irrigation. Rainfall is measured via rain gauges. Rainfall amounts can be estimated by weather radar.

A cloud was my mother, the wind is my father, my son is the cool stream, and my daughter is the fruit of the land. A rainbow is my bed, the earth my final resting place, and I'm the torment of man.

What goes up when the rain comes down? An umbrella

Two owls in the rain courting, Are they two wet to woo?

Rather than taking it from a quite joke like approach I was considering Highlighting the point that we should be thankful for the rain in the U.K as other countries suffering from drout's would appreciate the weather we have so much more than we do.
