Waterlilies

Waterlilies on Lochan Mor

Its time for the semi-annual foray to see the waterlilies on Lochan Mor (literally – the large-sized small loch… Gaelic place-names are so completely descriptive).  Earlier in the summer the flowers were mostly submerged, after all the constant rain.  Now they’re floating nicely.  I love how the light shines through them – they’re beautiful flowers, and so geometric in nature especially when you can get a complete reflection.
