Sky Watch: Hartshead Pike

This week's Sky Watch sees a return to the magnetic location of Hartshead Pike. As the tower that stands on the summit of the pike points so dramatically skyward, it is inevitable that photographs taken here are going to feature plenty of sky!

There is something about this hilltop location that gives it qualities of light that don't seem to be present down in the town, as can be seen from several of the previous photos that have appeared here.

What would have been a dramatic evening sky is made even more striking by the addition in this photo of the stark silhouette of the tower.

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!
