The Green Flash

Around 4m local (UTC -8)’ the swell began to subside. With it, the wind decided to let up a bit and we were granted our,long awaited reprieve.

Something seemed to,be in the offing as their was not a single cloud int sky from midday on. When clouds are a staple, their absence seems to be trying to tell you something.

With an absolutely clear horizon, if there ever was going to be an opportunity to witness a ‘ Green Flash’ this would be it. The Green Flash is an atmospheric phenomenon that is visible very rarely at sunset at sea. Or so it is said. There is a good deal of debate as to whether or not the Flash is real.

So, camera in hand on deck I went feeling like some kind of maritime Sasquatch myth buster. The Green Flash made no appearance but my enthusiasm was rewarded all the same.

Perhaps tomorrow…
