Calm evening colours

n Wellington the wind direction has a major impact on how the day will be.  Southerlies - cold, fresh.  Northerlies - warmer, fractious.  In between winds - calm, the light often clear and sparkling.  Yesterday was a settled day and the evening was calm and soft.  A pink sunset coloured the water and the scattered clouds, making pink and purple stripes.

Looking across Island Bay to Baring Head, the light fading.  The stripe at the horizon is the last light of the setting sun - the west is to the right of the photo.   Out to sea, it is even more peaceful and soft.

A magical hazy shimmer, as the evening closes in.
