I am working here at my studio with the nice pitter-patter of rain on the flat roof. It makes me want to take a nap, but alas, I have work to do. Rain, however, reminds of experiences, like Ireland.  Actually rain + wind remind me of Ireland, because Ireland has plenty of both.

When the Irish skies part and the wind slows down, however briefly, it is always worth it. Like this scene along the Irish coast with a little field filled with Irish wildflowers like these “sea pink” wildflowers.

Sea Pink Flowers

Sea Pink flowers at Barnabaun Point, County, Mayo, Ireland. Canon 1Ds. Mark III. 21mm. ISO 800. 1/500 sec. at f.5.6. EV +1. (it was quite windy, so I needed a fast shutter speed to freeze the blowing flowers).
