Red Sky At Night

One early evening recently I was sat watching TV when a flash of red out of the window suddenly caught my eye. The sun was setting and turning the sky the most vibrant shades of red and orange. It seriously looked like the sky was fire.

I grabbed my camera and hung out of the upstairs window for a while snapping away trying to capture the amazing array of colours.

There was a flock of birds circling in the sky above me, as if they were dancing for the camera. It was soothing and calming, quite meditative, to watch them glide and float across the sky.

The saying goes ‘red sky at night shepherd’s delight, red sky in the morning, shepherd’s warning’. Given the sheer brightness of the sky on this particular night, you could have expected a brilliant sunny day to follow. But alas, the old phrase did not ring true this time around. The following day brought torrential rain and bitterly cold winds that pretty much lasted for the full day. I’m sure many local shepherds were less than happy. I know I wasn’t delighted when my umbrella blew inside out and I got soaked!
