Yesterday gave almost twenty-four hours of continuous rain.

But at dusk the onset of silence, partnered by fine shafts of rose-gold light piercing the rattan blinds, signalled a change of mood.

The clouds parted a little to offer, as if in recompense, a dramatic sunset over the Arabian Sea.

Twilight is brief in the tropics but often spectacular.
