The farmhouse faces North to South, so that our sitting room and bedroom look over to the South and get sun for most of the day, whereas out dining room faces due North and gets no sun at all. But the windows I love most of all are our kitchen windows, which face to the West and therefore get the very best of the skies. This is especially true at this time of the year when our skies can be spectacular as the sun goes down. This week has been no exception. But catching them on a simple digital camera is another matter.
The two skies in the photographs were skies on Thursday and Friday of this week. The photographs were taken at more or less the same time, give or take five minutes. In reality the red sky at night (shepherd's delight!) was much redder and the mist was much mistier but I think the photographs just go to show that no two nights are ever the same. The sky as I write this is just a rather boring pale yellow - nothing spectacular at all. It seems to me that the more angry cloud there is about the better chance there is of spectacle.
Have a good weekend everyone!
