Sky Watch: Winter's Evening

A return to Broadcarr today for a view of Hartshead Pike in the snow, featuring the lovely colours of the recently set sun reflected on the clouds.

The photo was taken a few days ago. The snow will be much deeper now, after this wek's snow, but I have not been able to get up there to photograph it.

Compare today's snow image with this photo from the same spot that appeared three weeks ago.

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!


  1. It does look COLD! But how beautiful! Lovely colors! Hope you have a great weekend and stay WARM!


  2. Ashton complete under the snow, but it give great pictures on a winter evening.

  3. Gorgeous...love the silhouettes and colors! Have to say: Magnificent!

  4. That hill is calling for a sledge!

    Enjoy the snow while it lasts xo

  5. Beautiful winter scene...colors are great.
    Is that a lone Silo on the hill?

  6. I clicked on the other photograph. Personally, I adore this winter scene because of the position of the church steeple, the colors and shadow placement. Nice job!

  7. i do think i like this shot better as there's more light...both have lovely sunset colors.
    have a fab weekend.

  8. Wonderful to catch those quiet evening moments before night falls. This is a beautiful photo.

  9. Ashtonian - I got there by car to Broadcarr Lane that day. It would have been a bit difficult though earlier this week!

    Eaglesbrother, Light & Voices - the pointy thing in the background is a stone tower than is on top of the hill called Hartshead Pike:
    here's a closer view.

    More info about it here.

  10. This is a beautiful sunset. The tower sitting off by itself gives a very lonely, isolated feeling.

  11. Stunning picture !
    Wonderful colors.

  12. i remember over 55 years ago starting of from the west end of ashton with my sisters a bottle of water and a couple of sanwiches to get to the pike happy days . bud
