Lenticularis clouds over the rocky, barren landscape formed by the scouring action of ice-age. The tide was out uncovering carpet of pink sea thrift, (Armeria maritima) which live in the salty marshy land along the coast and are often covered by sea water at high tide.
Dedicated to Mother Nature – the world’s most creative artist. It is incredible how such beautiful flowers can be submerged in salt water part of the time and yet form such a luscious, colourful carpet when uncovered. And don’t forget those amazing lenticularis clouds!
Location: Carinish, North Uist (Cairinis, Uibhist a Tuath), Outer Hebrides, Scotland, UK.
