life through my lens

my passion is travel; my enjoyment photography

blossoms in the rain

On Sunday last we had a wonderfully refreshing rainfall in the early morning.  The air afterwards felt fabulously soft and luxurious against the skin, refreshing and cool.

I am so used to the heavy lashing thunderous rain of South Africa, that I always find the rainfall in the UK to be incredibly delicate, almost.   Once it had stopped the sunlight on the trees and plants cast wonderful rainbows into the freshly washed sky with tiny little drops perched perilously on delicate blooms.   I grabbed my camera and set off round the garden and this is what I saw.
