"The Sun is God'

Turner's last words before he died were,"The Sun is God". Saw Mike Leigh's film on Sunday about the artist's life with Timothy Spall in the title's leading role as Mr. Turner. 

This great painter of light was clearly fascinated by the elemental flux of earth, air, fire and water and the constantly changing conditions of light and atmosphere. Alex's photographs below taken from his balcony at various times reveal a similar delight in the simple pleasure of observing a familiar view of Brussels that is never the same from one moment to the next.
