Usually I'm out there in the mornings, but as is evident from this scene, the evening light has a brilliance of its own. Causing the dry yellow ochre grasses to flare up, as if about to ignite. The Sun is making its descent, hanging somewhere above the horizon line, literally just behind my left shoulder. The light house depicted, in the not to far off distance, is the openning to the habours at Scheveningen. Not quite fully recovered from a cold I picked up on my last outing, I decided to work on a smaller format.
