I wasn’t taking a picture, I was becoming the scene:
The stormy sky; the warm rosy splotch; the salty sea; the drops on the metal rail.
Two patches of pink separated by grey mountain peaks.
The sound of the waves; the reflection of the water; the translucent undulating water, like gelatin, revealing the rocks and sand beneath.
The boats, the distant pier.
