This is the first time I've read some of the comments on this post, and I just realized the title could be taken as a play on Prince's "Purple Rain." Clever!
While I was looking at this sad and beautiful picture of AJ recently, I got the line "I'm cryin' in the rain" stuck in my head, but I couldn't for the life of me remember what song it was from. It didn't take me long to remember: Dionne Warwick's tearjerker, "Heartbreaker" (which was written by The Bee Gees). From there, it wasn't a stretch before I envisioned a music video of AJ singing the song, while walking around in the rain, following a (self-induced) misunderstanding (and breakup) with Rarity (or Silverlay, or any Filly anyone chooses to ship AJ with). I think it could give context to the picture. (Understand that I'm not trying to undermine the artist's intent, or impose my ideas on anyone: just offering an idea.)
To the artist: Thank you again, for sharing this sweet picture of one of DA's favorite Ponies. Stay safe, everyone.
