Central Park in the Rain

I had never walked through the park in the autumn rain before.

It was just gorgeous.

Why is it that leaves and branches look somehow sharper and more defined when they are wet? Is it the glistening sheen? Is the gray of the sky a better contrast?

Maybe it's the feeling of newness that rain caries with it.
