The final flourish of the day illuminates the approaching weather front off the west coast.

Our eyes move down this painting.

They travel through the rich deep blue of the sky at dusk, the white clouds blasted by the westerly wind, the orange, red and violet of the mass of clouds until they reach the deep blue violet that fall into the encroaching darkness.

From the right, a light cuts across the water and through the gloom to come and shine on the rocky island.

Soon, it too will be cast in the silence and solitude of the night.

And the drama will end for another day.

I’d love to hear what you think.
