Gallery of the sky, Martinique


Saint Anne, viewed across the bay of Marin

What is it about the skies here?

The light is rapturous--perhaps that's what lured Paul Gaugin here in 1887 to paint about a dozen canvasses.

The clouds are enormous sculptures sailing over blue water.

Squalls sweep in over the Atlantic, giving way to rainbows of epic proportions. Look.....

From the kitchen at sunset
Gold glow of sunset, off the porch
Clouds from the porch
Sunset
