December sun on Bowland

The  darkest time of year often has the best light.

Actually, the ‘bad’ weather we’ve generally had all year has resulted in spectacular skies, particularly lovely later in the day. I think sunsets are particularly amazing here because of Morecambe Bay, a vast expanse of shallow water and mud that acts like a mirror. The near constant stream of depressions sweeping in off the Atlantic mean that we almost always have interesting clouds.

I gave this acrylic painting to my friend Owen, also a cloud lover.
