Sky Watch: Hartshead Pike

Hartshead Pike, on the ridge between Ashton under Lyne and Mossley, is a good place to see dramatic skyscapes and eerie lighting conditions. Today's photo shows dramatic clouds rather than actual sky, but this is England's Pennines, after all.

The Hartshead Pike tag at the end of the post will take you to other views of the hill in other lighting conditions.

Sky Watch is the new Friday feature on this photo blog. It will link 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!

See Google Aerial View of this location.


  1. Very beautiful shot! Nice angle, too.

  2. Happy Holidays to one and all from Mama, Duncan, Lamont, Leland, Kailey, and Lynette, from Portland, Oregon, USA.

    Great photo!

  3. This is certainly a very dramatic sky! Have a great holiday!

  4. Looks like a great place to spend some time, hiking. Two tracks are always so scenic. And yes, anywhere you can see the clouds moving in, makes for good photo taking.

  5. Very nice photo!It looks so quiet!Merry Christmas!

  6. Great shot, sky is amazing and whole pic is perfect. Happy swf

  7. Such a lovely place to watch anyrhing from. Dramatic skies, dramatic lamdscapes and probably great wild life as well.

  8. Wuthering Heights comes to mind even though it is the wrong side of the border. Dramatic and brooding it certainly is.

  9. A mention of "Wuthering Heights" from Babooshka, and Kate Bush comes to mind!

  10. Wonderful shot and it looks like someplace that would be great to wonder around it. Love the building.

  11. a great shot and reminds me of some eerie movie setting...thanks for sharing with us.
    happy holidays.

  12. Such dramatic skies! I can see why you keep photographing it. It has a different mood in each shot.
