Rain, rain, go away

It has rained - a lot.  The wiry coppery red stems of Muehlenbeckia astonii gather the drops like little jewels.

With a limited depth of field, the appearance of the out of focus elements ("bokeh") of the image creates a soft misty ethereal appearance - rather more beautiful than what it feels like.... but the rain does ease in the end...

... and the skies start clearing over Baring Head in dramatic contrast to the rain clouds.
