I discovered these flowers covered in fresh raindrops just after a Scottish drizzle raced across the small village of Durness in Scotland’s far north western reaches. The vibrantly colored flowers were in a small garden beside the road and I found myself separated from them by an ancient stone fence. As I paused to snap this quick shot, I was forced to continually keep one eye on the flowers and the other on the small single lane country road that hopped over a small hill, turned a corner, and then raced along the coast with only a few feet on either side to spare. Far from ideal, but never the less it did add a bit of excitement to an otherwise peaceful moment!
