With the recent deluge of rain in Charleston (thanks, Dorian), it seemed appropriate to call for photos of rainy days.

Robert Peterson's submission encapsulates what we imagine when we think about a rainy day in the Lowcountry. Dreary, gray sky. Expansive marshland views. Practically tangible humidity level. A+ work, Robert.

Other winners: Roxanne Wells' photo provides an interesting perspective — you can almost smell the water on the leaves. Bill Lackner's photo was called "rain please stop.jpg." We agree, Bill.

Next week's topic: Abstract. Get weird. Look at things a bit sideways, and send us your photos of them.

The rules: Send your best photo to yourphotos@postandcourier.com by noon Thursday. Include your name, town and where the photo was taken. If you want your photo to be eligible to run in the newspaper, it must be at least 1,500 pixels and not have a commercial watermark.

On Fridays, we first announce the editors’ pick of the week at www.postandcourier.com/yourphotos and publish an online gallery. We also declare a topic for the next week.

On Sunday, the photo pick of the week will appear in this section, Life.

All photos submitted will be considered for publication in The Post and Courier’s yearly magazine, My Charleston. Some images may be selected for other editorial or noncommercial use.

We reserve the right to not publish any photo for any reason.
