Rainy days have long been great emotional fodder for photographers. There is just a special kind of beauty that goes with a wet city street after a hard rain. Water changes the way that light plays on objects, evoking a particular reflective state of emotion in any given scene. Even drops on a window pane exude a certain undeniable melancholy. The emotional palette of a rainy day, however, varies depending on the context and choices taken by a particular photographer, and the variety of feelings involved can range anywhere between muggy sadness and a more upbeat sense of cleansing and renewal.

This gallery features a variety of photos from the PicsArt community with the theme of a rainy day. Have a look and share your own rainy day photos by tagging them with #rainyday.
