Spring Colours on Mull

The period of northerly airflow in early May brought cool but very clear conditions. The colours seemed to be especially sharp and lovely. This is a bay on the south coast of Gometra.

Primroses were well into flower whilst Thrift (Armeria Maritima) was just beginning to bring a purple wash to the cliffs and rocks.

The contrast of sky, basaltic rocks and lichens seemed to fairly zing with colour.

But perhaps not as brightly as this milepost in the foreground of the view of Ben More from Pennyghael! There's no Photoshop in use here; it really is carefully painted bright pink.....
