Beavertail Clouds Of Sunset by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery

In 2020, sunsets have taken on special meaning. There is a wave of unexpressed contemplation and internalized philosophy taking place. Nowhere is this more evident than at Beavertail Point on Conanicut Island.

As sunset approaches, we watch people start to congregate. One by one the cars drive in and park in quiet nearing reverence. They come to see something special, constant yet changing, and reassuring. They come to reflect. To share. To form a silent, if distanced, community.

The people sit and watch out their car windshields. Sunroofs open and heads pop out. People step out and eyes connect across a respectful space without words. They all know that something miraculous is happening.

This evening's sunset is set among the clouds of the day. The clouds give the sunset purchase, something to grab on to. The colors coalesce into oranges, yellows, and reds. This is one of the closing sunsets of 2020, and we need to share that there is something as steadfast as the setting sun... and that miracles still happen.
