Oil on Board.

Late afternoon in October, on the distant shore someone has an autumn bonfire going. The sun is low, a last sail before laying up for the winter. There is a wonderful melancholia in the air and the faintest scent of colder air coming from some faraway winter mountains.
This is looking from Pendennis Point in Falmouth, across the bay towards the Lizard, where I live. I felt as if I was on holiday, visiting a foreign shore, everything looked new and exciting and this view got my heart pumping.
