In the thin winter light
the setting sun
throws its final breath
on the fields below.
Bare branched trees
and muddy tracks
North Yorkshire, November 2017
Lines in the clouds, tractor track lines in the field and yes, a power line …
At six degrees south of the equator,
the surprise of dusk is dramatic and sudden.
One moment you are enjoying the last rays of sunshine,
the next, darkness falls like a warm blanket.

At the end of the day, watching the sun descend into the ocean in all its glory is deeply satisfying. No matter where I am, I try to catch those last rays.
In Zanzibar, the silhouette of a dhow sailing out on the evening breeze in the approaching darkness, pairs the imagery of sunset and dhow in a perfect match.
Whatever the season.
The beach beckons.
