Oh, Alan this is so pretty.

Just wondering if the white lights in the windows of the sailboats should be that bright, or should they be reflecting the pinks and yellows in the sky?

What do you think?

Good question. Those lights are intended to be the lights in the cabin, and I think that they would show up rather bright at that time of night. Open to comments though. What do others think?

Alan, I am presently sitting in a dark anchorage and yes the lights do show quite bright. Now that the sun is gone, our full moon has been covered by cloud so it is now very black. All we can see are the anchor lights and the little white dots of cabin lights. I just had a thought for a painting!  :heeha: Thanks Alan!
Cheers, Val
