As I was driving back to the newspaper after an assignment today, a cloudburst caught pedestrians in downtown Spokane by surprise. I pulled over and jumped out of my car to get my camera from my trunk. I was soaked by the time I crawled back into my front seat. In my rearview mirror, I spotted this woman as she waited for the light to change. I jumped out and hit the motor drive, shooting a sequence of about thirty images as she raced across the street. People sometimes ask me why I shoot so many picture at a time.  I tell them it about capturing a fleeting moment. This photo’s strength is in the woman’ body language. Her stride, with her legs apart and arm swinging back stood out in my edit. Nikon D4, Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. Colin Mulvany/The Spokesman-Review
