Evening calm

The sunset has left a salmon-pink glow in the sky.  A period of calm, following a southerly front and leading no doubt into another, has meant the day has been bright and sunny, the sky has been clear and the sea quiet.

Taputeranga, the island of Island Bay, seen from Princess Bay on Wellington's south coast.  The sea has a soft, pearly colour, with faint reflections of the island and the puffy clouds above it.  The South Island is seen in the distance, a soft silhouette.  A time for slowing down, and appreciation, a gentle end to the day.
