A November late afternoon on the west coast of Islay, just after sunset. The last light of the Gloaming illuminates the view from the low dunes on the northern end of Kilchoman beach. The wreck of the Patti below us, a fairly calm Machir Bay behind. In the distance a glimpse of Ireland appears out of the mist and clouds.
