Petrichor - Image Selection

With the warmth of Spring comes the refreshing rain of renewal. Trickle, drizzle, pitter-patter, pour, gush, torrential... these are some words used to describe how rainfall feels, looks and sounds like. There is a word that actually describes the smell of rain. Derived from the Greek word for stone, “petra”, and “ichor” referring to the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods, petrichor is the name coined for the potpourri of aromas that form the smell of rain, attributed to a blend of oils trapped in rocks and soil that is mainly responsible for it (the blood of the stone). Check out our selection at agefotostock for some good rain-related images.
