Awesome sunset over MtLawleyShire. Saturday Jan 24. #3: The Sunset

The clouds were just – the colours, the luminous air! Nothing does justice to what I saw this evening.

For one brief moment, there was a stillness behind the old house

but above –

I tried to get in all the sky but it was impossible

That great cloud had lost all its grey and bollowed as gold as a sandstorm in a mythical Sahara

the architecture of the cloud

In this sequence, I try to show the all devouring aspect of those clouds, their apocalyptic facade

and yet, almost imperciptibly, it begins to fade

It loses nothing of its power as darkening sky creeps into the empty spaces s it still takes colour from the gold lining the horizon

and from a greater distance, the golds and oranges, the vivid power of it were being subsumed by the darker tones of oncoming night
