The composition started with the paper illuminated stars hanging in the Reindeer public house. I liked them, so photographed them. I liked the candles arranged on the mantlepiece of a blocked off fireplace, in the back bar of the Plough P.H. I rearranged and added to the stars, but kept the candles as they were presented. I used the line of candles as a base for the image. The wonderful sunset at Burns Beach was witnessed by members of my family, when we were in Australia. We had just buried my brother Barrie who had passed away, September 2018. We had a little picnic and a drink to watch the sun going down. Of course my brother was a STAR…I miss you X (A1).
