This blue marble

Dusk over the Azure Coast

Leave a comment


Dusk slowly crept in over the Azure Coast as we lifted off and flew into the night. In the last hours of day the clear blue turned deep indigo, with a peach glow from the setting sun. I could not help but wonder how turn-of-the-century art would have been different had Matisse, Picasso, Renoir, Chagall, Cézanne, and the lot seen the Riviera light from up in the air.
