Zanzibar Watercolour   West Coast, Zanzibar, Africa

Most of the time the skies at sunset in Zanzibar were largely clear and the sun would sink, a great glowing orb which duly sizzled as it dropped into the sea.  On this occasion the sky was cloudy and a storm was beginning to brew which latterly turned into a ferocious wind driven rainy squall.  Before it reached that stage we had the lull before the storm and the sky seemd backlit with softly glowing pinks and blues like a giant watercolour painting.  I moved my position along the foreshore to place the outrigger boat dead centre for stark effect.
