Red Sky at Night......

Red sky at night, sailor's delight,
Red sky in the morning, sailor's warning


Like a red morn that ever yet betokened,
Wreck to the seaman, tempest to the field,
Sorrow to the shepherds, woe unto the birds,
Gusts and foul flaws to herdmen and to herds

~ Shakespeare : Venus and Adonis

That's amazing I've just been watching a sky like that for the last half hour. The weird thing is it was absolutely poring down when I fist noticed it. It's stopped now and the clouds are turning to pink. Cloud and sky watching is such a great hobby isn't it.

Sadly my camera battery is flat so I haven't taken any pictures. I'll go and plug it in now. Thanks for this.
