One of the last landscapes I did before returning to Niue in 1995, this is a view painted from the end of the Tapora peninsular looking south toward Auckland from where an ominous cloud (smoke?) ascends. The cloud in partnership with the tracks in the sand also acts as a strong compositional element.
