In a perfect world (at least for photographers) the sun would shine all the time. But as it isn't, a little rain must fall every now and then. Case in point this rainy Saturday afternoon at LAX. Florian Trojer was visiting from Innsbruck and the majority of his stay looked just like this. Sometimes that's just the way things happens. You have to make the best of what nature throws at you. Here we see VIR07 touching down on a soggy 7R. Local time is now 15:22.

As you can see, at this second the photo was shot, the thrust reversers are just starting to open up on the engines...pretty exacting if not intended.
