Some descriptions of southern European landscape

  • The sun gobbles as the sky, ferociously bright and hot. The hungry sun, the lean and muscular sun.
  • This tree is seven storeys tall. The detail of its million leaves would baffle any engraver.
  • Dust blowzes over the road in spectral tan-coloured folds.
  • The epilecting sunlight between and behind trees.
  • The sky the colour in which seas and oceans are printed in atlases.
  • The quality of shadow, rolled out slowly from this prone log by the sun, by the yard, for your inspection.
  • Mountains tuck their tips into the pleats of the clouds.
