THE ROYAL SQUADRON

As the new day advances, the sea – true mirror of the sky – reflects its deeper blue; left bare by the receding tide, large tracts of sand and rocks of varied hue have quite changed the aspect of the scene: from the sun’s warm rays the green. Cool valleys offer delightful retreats, – narrow, winding, and well wooded, they abound in scenes of perfect sylvan beauty. Branching in every direction, shady lanes, lined by graceful elms, lead to every part of the Island. Along the western coast the glowing colours of the setting sun are reflected from each rocky headland and sandy bay, blending their rich hues with the pearly tints of the rising moon. During the equinoctial gales, the storm-swept sea shivers its wild waves into glittering fragments along the rocky coast, whilst dark grey clouds cast their driving shadows over sea and land.

In the Drawings these various effects of sunrise, noon, sunset, twilight, moonlight, and storm, are given.
