Artist's Description

“There are no words to express the feelings that induce a sailor to offer fervent prayers when he sees this mark of sympathy expressed by his fellow men. Suddenly he sees that he is no longer alone in the midst of the ocean waves: he sees that people are caring for him with paternal solicitude”

Lt. Lavrentiy Alekseyevich Zagoskin 1839

Returning afternoon sunlight at Start Point (Devon) – as squalls beneath huge Cumulo Nimbus clouds retreat to the east.

Start Point is a promontory in the South Hams district in Devon, England, grid reference SX832370. Close to the most southerly point in the county, it marks the southern limit of Start Bay, which extends northwards to the estuary of the River Dart.

The rocks of the point are greenschist and mica-schist, formed by metamorphism of Devonian sediments during a period of mountain building towards the end of the Carboniferous period.

The name “Start” derives from an Anglo-Saxon word steort, meaning a tail.
