I spent a magical week in the Isle of Mull, Scotland, visiting Staffa island and Iona too. It was an opportunity to capture images of Scottish wildlife, and to practice photographic techniques.
With the way the garden is changing so rapidly, with flowers blooming and fading within 24/48 hours, and the fact we’ve had some rain, I thought I’d capture the Bearded Iris while they’re in flower. I love the way raindrops on black Iris look like fat, juicy droplets of blood…
Iceland is a constant inspiration to improve my skills and technique – it is the kind of country you want to capture perfectly, and possibly never will.
