September 11 on Galway Bay

9/11/2009; 11am. Salthill, Galway, Ireland;
I was stopped in my tracks this morning as I passed through Salthill, by the extraordinary view of a 10 km long, 200 metre-high, wall of white sea-mist being forced back across Galway Bay and onto the Burren hills by a surprising scirocco of sultry September sunshine, refracting on a crystal blue sea and firmament. Mother Nature has sent us a truly spectacular reminder of how beautiful the world can be, and what such a moment is for, a testament to life and the passing of a cloud.
Stop and stare. Close mouth. Breathe. Remember. Hmmm!
