A view from Brighton


It wasn't a cold April evening, but cool enough to keep Brighton beach near Melbourne pretty well empty. The sun sank below the bay's horizon and the lights came on illuminating the famous beach boxes. To the north the lights of the city began to take effect in the growing darkness. It was an alluring scene and I took a fair share of photos.

I know this scene very well Mike as a regular walking spot and have also painted it plein aire. You have captured it very well.
