Artist's description:

A woman cradles a little bit of the brightness that lies on the distant horizon in an otherwise grey day. I wanted to get across the idea of positivity and hope because although the scene was grey, it was by no means dull.
This image ws inspired by seeing a line of trees with a very pale evening sky behind them, to the south west, as I drove home from Lincoln.
