The sky is God’s canvas. There is something magical, something breath-taking, about Devon sunsets. The cloud shows are intricate artworks by themselves, but then when the pink light of a late sun hits them, it is as if the air becomes shaped concrete – expertly placed by some maestro with impossible skill. Myself and bubbles went for our evening stroll, next to the sea, and through the cobbled roads of the old Barbican, circling back through Royal Parade. Close to our house, in our very street, we saw this scene – painted – it seemed – for us.

Peter van der Walt is a fiction author, although you may find some non-fiction and the odd essay out there. Fans can find his newsletter, posts, updates and developments at Currently, he is hard at work on his next story. When not writing, he has far too many interests to reasonably keep up with. He lives with his partner in Devon, England.
