Sky Watch: Hartshead Pike


(Click photo for larger version. Press Back button to return here.)

A striking photo of Hartshead Pike, my favourite location, taken last week on the same walk as last week's Sky Watch photo.

The setting sun lit up the silky wisps of wafer-thin cloud that was making extraordinary patterns and textures. I'm sure I'll be able to find yet another photo from that evening for you soon...

See Birds Eye View of this location.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies. You are most welcome!

  1. That's an extraordinarily beautiful sky - a fitting backdrop for the tower. The silhouette could almost be the tower of the Victoria Hall in Saltaire - similar shape.

  2. This is indeed a striking photo! I wonder what's causing the clouds to form such strong lines yet still remain so wispy.
