Sky Watch: Down the Line

Today's glorious evening sky view is looking along the railway line from Ashton eastwards towards Stalybridge.

It is looking from the bridge where Cowhill Lane crosses the railway. The next bridge carries Romney Street. To the right of the bridge you can just make out the former Albion Sunday School.

On the far right of the picture is the Markazi Jamia Mosque in Newton Street, situated in a building that was formerly the old St Mary's School. The mosque will soon be moving to a new site in Hillgate Street so that Ashton's northern by-pass road can bludgeon its way through.

Sky Watch is the regular 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!

  1. More like a painting than a photograph.

  2. Fantastic! Makes me want to get on a train . . .

  3. That is indeed quite glorious. It would surely inspire a local artist, quite a view.

  4. This was well worth the wait for the light to fall just right.

  5. You are quite right, Ashtonian. I took a photo from this bridge, then went for a walk around town taking more photos, such as the one of the Council Offices I posted last week. Then I walked back over this bridge again and saw that the light had changed completely and had gone this striking colour, so I took another photo - this one!

  6. I simply have one word to describe this - gorgeous!!!

  7. a stunning capture...love the sky.
