Towards Castlefreke and Long Strand
There's a time in the evening when the sun is thinking about setting but seems reluctant to do so. Low in the sky the light is soft and filtered, imparting a certain 'glow' to everything.
As I stood in that field of Barley, I felt like I was in the midst of a great painting, a work of genius, by the great Artist. It was a moment of beauty; I could hear the sea rush against the shore to my left and I could smell the earthy ground, still wet from the recent rainfall. A breeze was gently blowing across the fields so that the Barley seemed - almost - to mimic the movement of the nearby waves. There was a mist beginning to rise in the distant hollows and I knew that the special light was about to leave, so I reluctantly did the same.
