Falbh (Depart)

Falbh (Depart)

An attempt to salvage something of merit from a flat and colourless sunset at Point Lonsdale Victoria.

The 194m Spirit of Tasmania, appears tiny on the horizon, left of the dominant rock, heading off into the murk, on her 190km, nightly voyage.

The Scottish word "flabh", means to depart, or withdraw. "Tonnan a' briseadh 's a' falbh", means "waves breaking and retiring." In this sense, I imagine the receding water speeding our rapidly disappearing Spirit on her way.
