Winter light up here is an adventure. The first image above and the ones below were taken almost exactly two hours apart yesterday. Above, at about 11 a.m., curdling clouds mass above ancient apple trees on a hill above Great Cove, which lies unseen just below the horizon. A monochromatic soul-searching moment.

Below, a few miles away at about 1 p.m., a big blue sky above Blue Hill Bay hosts fast-moving cloud wisps. Its reflections spill into little Conary Cove, where the flamboyant Fishing Vessel Sun’s Up dares to wear a yellow hull with a blue mooring float. A color-popped visual laugh.

Smaller craft in Conary Cove add to the delight.
