Sky Watch: In the Spotlight

Another photo looking down from Hartshead Pike, but very different from last week's image from nearly the same spot.

On a very overcast day, a pocket of sunlight highlights an area around Lees Road and Lily Lanes. On the left side of the highlight is St Damians School and Playing Field.

Further back and to the left can be seen the silhouettes of the blocks of flats in Ashton, with Audenshaw Reservoirs gleaming beyond.

In the far distance, on the extreme right of the picture, the tall buildings in the centre of Manchester can just be made out. (Click to see larger version of photo.)

In the foreground is one of the dry stone walls that march across the hills in this area.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly 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. Great to see the sun peeking under the clouds.

  2. It is nice to see the sun peeking thru, great capture.

  3. The light in this is wonderful - a few minutes later and it might have been gone - great photo.

  4. I love the light and the way it awakens the colour in the field. Beautiful shot.

  5. Dark and light in contrast. Sun still makes a dramatic appearance as its rays shine thru the clouds. Great shot.

  6. Beautiful photo of the sun rays casting down through the clouds. A stunning scene for the landscape.

    When I saw the title of your blog, Ikea came to my mind straight away. Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. I always like the shafts of sunlight filtering through the clouds.

  8. Nice pic. I love it up at the pike. Good bike ride too
