Plein air, apprx. 20 x 15cm
After a lengthy spell of poor weather, the jet stream has shifted again and we have had some fine ( if windy! ) days once the fog lifts in the afternoons. Rather unusually for this coastline and time of year easterly and southerly gales have generated nice waves at Porth Nanven, the cliffs providing shelter from the high winds. Making my way back after sunset, a beautiful crescent Moon with earthshine, Venus and the setting winter constellations marked my return home accompanied by the first bats to emerge from hibernation, flitting past in near silence as they hunted for insects in the falling darkness.
