My wife and I have taken a couple of moments away from the recent madness and have camped ourselves on a beach near Wilson’s Prom. I just went to the beach and took time to take in the subtle colours of dusk. I am not an “arty” person, like some in my family, but every now and then I take a moment to appreciate creation.

Throughout the day the sun was strong, the sky blue and the waters aqua, but as the sun set the colours softened into far more subtle shades – pinks, purples and greys. Lines, like the horizon which had been district earlier, we’re now harder to read. The gulls and ducks melted into shadows.

(Two hours later) the stars have come out in we are have shades of darkness and shadows.

Conclusion: it is good to stop and smell the roses, or in my case, appreciate the colours. It is good to be reminded of how great creation is – even, or is it, especially, in the simple things.

PS I left the camera connector for my iPad at home so I’ll have to upload the photos some other time. 😦

    The word-pictures will have to do for now – we’re shivering over here (-5C) and very envious of your summer!

    sounds great! I have been forest walking and appreciating the black on grey on white colouring here. Love, Kik

  4. For a ‘non-arty person’ you do a good job at painting the scene in words! Looking forward to photos. So agree about stopping and looking and appreciating the beauty all around us, even in the ordinary everyday things, let alone a spectacular sunset.

  5. Thanks for the feedback. We are enjoying our “timeout”.
